African leaders have endorsed a proposal by Kenya to push for withdrawal from the International Criminal Court (ICC).

They believe the court unfairly targets the continent for prosecution while ignoring rights abuses elsewhere in the world.

The decision, which was made at the African Union (AU), is a proposal for member states to create a "road map for the withdrawal of African nations," according to a Kenyan presidential statement.
