ICC prosecutor wants to adjourn Kenyatta trial

The prosecutor at the International Criminal Court has asked for an adjournment in the trial of Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Fatou Bensouda said the loss of two key witnesses meant the case currently "does not satisfy the high evidentiary standards required".

Mr Kenyatta is accused of orchestrating violence after Kenya's 2007 elections in which hundreds of people were killed.
