African Union to introduce resolution in Security Council to delay Kenya ICC trials

The African Union says its members will introduce a resolution in the U.N. Security Council to delay the International Criminal Court trial of Kenya's leaders for a year.
Pressure for a deferral has intensified following last month's deadly terror attack by militants on a Nairobi mall.
Ghebreyesus said Thursday some council members support a deferral of the trials of President Uhuru Kenyatta and Deputy President William Ruto, and others "have some difficulties with it."
The cases against the leaders relate to deadly postelection violence in 2007 and 2008.
The ICC said Thursday it has postponed Kenyatta's trial until Feb. 5.
