Security Council fails to pass resolution to defer trials of Kenyan leadersListen /
The Security Council on Friday did not get enough votes to pass a resolution that would have postponed the trials of Kenyan leaders at the International Criminal Court (ICC).
The African Union had requested the court, which is based in The Hague, to defer the trials of Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyata and Deputy President William Ruto for one year.
The two leaders face charges related to the violence that followed the 2007 presidential elections in which more than 1,000 people were killed and thousands of others displaced.
