ICC postpones Kenyatta trial opening


The International Criminal Court on Thursday postponed the opening date of the crimes against humanity trial of Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta after prosecutors asked for a delay.

The "trial chamber vacated the trial commencement date of 5 February 2014," The Hague-based court said in a statement, adding that a hearing would be held instead to discuss the prosecution's request for a three-month postponement.
