ICC Says Kenyan President Will Not Have To Attend All of His Trial

Kenyatta is accused of committing crimes against humanity


Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta need not attend all of his trial on charges of crimes against humanity, the International Criminal Court has said.

He is only required to be present at certain key parts of the case, a majority of judges ruled.

Mr Kenyatta has argued that attending the trial in The Hague would prevent him from governing the country.
