Kenya Capital Calm

NAIROBI, Kenya () -- Kenya's capital returned to business as normal and riot police moved off the streets Thursday with two universities closed after clashes between police and students.

Truckloads of riot police who had patrolled Nairobi and its suburbs since Monday left the streets by Thursday morning's rush hour and the city returned to work.

Three straight days of unrest broken up by riot police had prompted a total of 20 countries to press President Daniel arap Moi's government to open a dialogue with opposition-backed groups.
