Kenya's presidential election 'null and void'

Kenya's Supreme Court annuls the result of the presidential election and, in an unprecedented move in African political history, orders a re-run.

Kenya's Supreme Court annuls the result of last month's presidential election and orders a re-run in an unprecedented move in African political history. So did international election observers who praised the conduct of the election get it wrong? We hear from the head of the EU mission and a member of President Kenyatta's legal team tells us his leader's claim that the judges were "crooks" was just "banter". The UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres says he's concerned about alleged excesses committed by Myanmar's troops against the Muslim minority, the Rohingya. A monitoring group tells us the minority are being ethnically cleansed.
