Kenya Charter Ceremony Overshadowed by al-Bashir

Kenyan President Mwai Kibaki signed into law a new constitution today during a ceremony partly overshadowed by the presence of Sudanese President Umar al-Bashir, wanted by the International Criminal Court for genocide.

Al-Bashir joined other East African leaders as well as tens of thousands of Kenyans at the signing ceremony that took place in a downtown park in the capital, Nairobi.
