Kenya asks UN to quash ICC case against president

Kenya asks UN to quash ICC case against president

Kenya is getting a chilly reception to its appeal to the U.N. Security Council to "terminate" International Criminal Court cases against the president and deputy president for crimes against humanity.
The Kenyan president and his deputy are charged with planning and financing Kenya's 2007-08 postelection violence in which more than 1,000 people died and 600,000 were evicted from their homes.
Security Council diplomats say on condition of anonymity that Rwanda was the only council member to show much sympathy for Kenya.
Kenya's U.N. ambassador, Macharia Kamau, says "We have asked that these proceedings be terminated as soon as possible" by the Security Council.
