South Sudan released seven of the 11 key leaders held after an alleged coup bid last month, Kenya's presidency said Wednesday as Nairobi accepted to host the group.

The seven men appeared at a press conference hosted by Kenyan President Jomo Kenyatta in the capital Nairobi. Four leaders remain in custody in South Sudan, facing trial for attempting to topple the government.
