Kenya's Elections

Kenyans went to the polls in droves yesterday to cast ballots in the first presidential election since 2007, when widespread accusations of vote-rigging sparked violent protests. The current front-runner, Uhuru Kenyatta, was charged by the International Criminal Court with crimes against humanity as a result. With 19 reported killed on election day, the country is bracing for the possibility of more violence, as well as "consequences" threatened by the U.S. and other allies if Kenyatta wins.
