ICC orders arrest of Kenyan reporter Walter Barasa

The International Criminal Court has issued an arrest warrant for Kenyan journalist Walter Osapiri Barasa.

He is accused of offering bribes to prosecution witnesses in The Hague trial of Deputy President William Ruto - an allegation he denies.

ICC chief prosecutor Fatou Bensouda called on Kenya to immediately arrest and transfer Mr Barasa to The Hague, as he was suspected of being part of a network trying to "sabotage" the case.
