Kenya displaced ignore deadline


Thousands of Kenyans living in camps set up after post-election violence last year say they will ignore the government's deadline for them to leave.

During the 2008 riots, some 1,300 people were killed and 300,000 displaced by violence between ethnic groups.

Many still living in the camps say they are afraid to return to their old communities, and that the government promised them land.

Will Ross visited one camp in Eldoret which remains the home of almost 2,000 people.
