FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “Kenya ordered to pay sex attack survivors after 2007 poll violence” – below is their description.

In tonight’s edition: Morocco normalises relations with Israel as the US, in turn, pledges to recognise Rabat’s sovereignty over the Western Sahara. And a landmark victory for rape survivors in Kenya, the High Court awards compensation to four women – assaulted after the 2007 election. It is the first time judges have officially recongised post-election sexual violence. And making clothes for those who fled with nothing, we meet a tailor who has set up shop on the Sudanese-Ethiopian border, helping those who recently fled the conflict in Tigray.
