Annan calls for riot tribunals


Former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan says the leaders of Kenya's post-election violence should face trial.

Mr Annan helped mediate a peace deal after the 2008 violence in which 1,300 were killed and 300,000 displaced.

Speaking to the BBC's Will Ross, Mr Annan said that the perpetrators "are using scare tactics" in an attempt to avoid trial.
