Kenya election violence: ICC names suspects

15 December 2010 Last updated at 18:34 GMT

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.

Kenyan MPs have so far blocked moves to set up a local tribunal.
