The International Criminal Court has declared a mistrial in Kenyan Deputy President William Ruto’s crimes against humanity case.

There had been a “troubling incidence of witness interference and intolerable political meddling”, judges said, according to a report by BBC News.

Mr. Ruto denied murder, deportation and persecution charges during violence that followed the 2007 elections in which about 1,200 people were killed.

He is one of the most senior politicians to be tried by the ICC.
