Kenya makes new plea to UN Council over ICC charges


UNITED NATIONS: Kenya made a new plea to the UN Security Council on Thursday to “terminate” International Criminal Court charges against President Uhuru Kenyatta and other leaders over political unrest in 2008.

But western nations on the 15-member council told Kenyan diplomats at a private meeting that Kenyatta, Deputy President William Ruto and one of their followers must face the court. Kenyatta, Ruto, radio presenter Joshua arap Sang face crimes against humanity charges over violence after elections in late December 2007 in which more than 1,100 people died. All deny the charges.
