THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — Lawyers for Kenya's deputy president are seeking an adjournment in his trial at the International Criminal Court so he can return home to help deal with the fallout from the deadly shopping mall attack in Nairobi.
Attorney Karim Khan said Sunday he has submitted a request for an adjournment and the court is expected to debate it Monday morning.
