A court in Kenya has extended orders barring the deployment of police to Haiti for 2 more weeks

NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) — A Kenyan court has extended orders blocking the deployment of Kenyan police to Haiti to lead a U.N. Security Council-approved mission to combat gang violence in the Caribbean nation. The High Court on Tuesday said it would rule on the case on Nov. 9. Former presidential candidate Ekuru Aukot filed a petition on Oct. 9 against the deployment of Kenyan forces. He argues that the law allowing the president to do so conflicted with articles of the Kenyan Constitution.
