Kenyans await ruling over vote violence

ICC considering whether to move to trial over deadly unrest that followed 2007 elections.

    Pre-trial hearings at the International Criminal Court, involving six of Kenya's most prominent leaders, have come to a close.

    Now the court must decide whether the accused should stand trial for the country's post-election violence that left more than 1,000 people dead.

    No ethnic group was spared as neighbour turned on neighbour, and as a result, many believe that a trial is the only chance the victims have of achieving any justice.
