Power-sharing deal reached in Kenya

Kofi Annan announces a coalition government will be formed, ending weeks of division.


    Annan had suspended talks on Tuesday after negotiators for either side could not agree on a deal.

     

    Primary in disagreements was the level of power to be assigned to the prime minister.

     

    The crisis ignited after disputed presidential elections on December 27, which the ODM claimed was rigged.

     

    More than 1,500 people were killed in the rioting and tribal clashes which followed.
