Projects: Kenya Post Election Unrest
Kenya has been convulsed by ethnic bloodshed since President Mwai Kibaki's disputed re-election at the end of December.
The violence has largely pitted supporters of opposition candidate Raila Odinga, who belongs to the ethnic Luo group, against Kibaki's Kikuyu tribe.
More than 900 people have been killed and an estimated 400,000 have fled their homes, some crossing into Uganda.
Outbreaks of violence along ethnic lines have displaced hundreds of thousands of people in Kenya over the past 15 years.
Kenya's transition to multiparty politics in the 1990s saw an upsurge of clashes and displacement, and violence spiked in the election years of 1992, 1997 and 2002.
Unresolved issues of land and property, going back to the colonial period, are often identified as the key reason for conflict. But in many cases political infighting and efforts by local politicians to garner votes are the trigger.
