Kenya election violence: ICC names suspects

The prosecutor at the International Criminal Court (ICC) has named six high-profile Kenyans he accuses of being behind the violence that followed the disputed 2007 elections.

Deputy PM and Finance Minister Uhuru Kenyatta, one of those named, immediately protested his innocence.

Some 1,200 people died and more than 500,000 fled homes in the violence.

In the peace deal that followed it was agreed perpetrators would face justice in Kenya or at the ICC in The Hague.

ICC prosecutor Luis Moreno Ocampo said their policy had been to focus on those people they believed were most responsible for the crimes.
