International court scraps start of Kenyatta trial

THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) - The International Criminal Court has scrapped the start date for the trial of Kenya's president on charges he orchestrated violence after his country's 2007 elections.

THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) - The International Criminal Court has scrapped the start date for the trial of Kenya's president on charges he orchestrated violence after his country's 2007 elections.

The court announced Thursday it will instead hold a hearing Feb. 5 - the day President Uhuru Kenyatta's trial was to have started - into prosecutors' request for a three-month adjournment in the case.

The delay is the latest to hit the case against Kenyatta, who insists he is innocent of all charges against him.

Prosecutors asked for a delay in the case in December after one witness pulled out and another admitted giving false evidence.
