Kenya's relations with Britain are under strain over an incident in which a Kenyan civilian was shot and killed during a military training exercise. A British Army sergeant who has been unable to leave Kenya for more than seven months following the shooting is at the center of a tussle between the two governments over the case. The circumstances of the shooting are still unclear and the soldier is confined to a British base while the two governments wrangle over legal jurisdiction.
