U.N. Security Council deplores Kenya violence, urges political compromise
UNITED NATIONS -- On Wednesday the U.N. Security Council deplored the widespread violence in Kenya and urged political leaders to resolve the crisis over disputed elections "through dialogue, negotiation and compromise."
The presidential statement was the first response by the U.N.'s most powerful body to the fighting that erupted after the Dec. 27 presidential election, which has killed more than 800 people.
The council statement expressed concern at the dire humanitarian situation in the country, where some 310,000 people have fled their homes, and gave strong backing to negotiations led by former U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan to end the violence.
