Court Grants Extension In Kenya-Somalia Maritime Case

The International Court of Justice has granted Kenya's request to have the maritime dispute case heard in 12 months. Somalia wants the sea border extended along the land border; a plea which if granted could limit Kenya's access to high season, with its Indian Ocean shore technically rendering the country landlocked.
