Annan Says Kenyan Parties Agree on Roadmap Toward Ending Violence


The parties of Kenya's feuding political leaders have agreed on a joint plan to end the post-election violence that has killed some 850 people.

Former U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan says the sides have agreed on a four-point framework for the talks he is leading in the Kenyan capital, Nairobi. Annan says the two sides believe they can deal with the first three items within 15 days.

He says those priorities include immediate action to end the violence, addressing Kenya's humanitarian crisis, and resolving the political crisis that triggered the violence. There were no immediate details on how the sides would handle those problems or would deal with the fourth agenda point, a long-term solution to Kenya's political tensions. Kenyan opposition leader Raila Odinga accuses President Mwai Kibaki of rigging last month's presidential election. Protests that exploded after the election have since degenerated into tribal violence.
