Kenyan lawmakers on September 5 began debating whether the country should pull out of the ICC, in an angry snub to The Hague-based tribunal ahead of next week's trial of Vice President William Ruto. Ruto on September 10 will be in The Hague to face three counts of crimes against humanity for allegedly organizing 2007-2008 post-election unrest that killed at least 1,100 people and displaced more than 600,000. His trial comes about two months ahead of that of President Uhuru Kenyatta, who faces five charges of crimes against humanity, including murder, rape, persecution and deportation.
