Us Bans Kenyans 'Behind Violence'

Al Jazeera English "The US has banned 10 Kenyans who were allegedly behind ethnic violence since disputed elections in the African nation.

US officials announced the move on Thursday, with the British foreign office saying that it may follow suit.

The ban on entry to the US is seen as a possible incentive for Kenyan figures to resolve the country's dispute.

The US said that those banned included five politicians and five prominent businesspeople, but would not elaborate."
