ICC accused of targeting Africa

Accusations come as delegates gather in Uganda to review the court's progress.

    Its creation was supposed to extend the rule of law to the corners of the world that needed it most.

    But eight years on, the International Criminal Courtstands accused of focusing exclusively on African countries and exacerbating existing conflicts in its refusal to drop charges in exchange for peace deals.

    As delegates gather for an international conference in Uganda to review the court's progress, Al Jazeera's Mohammed Adow reports from Nairobi, Kenya, where some believe the court is picking on the continent and ignoring crimes elsewhere.
