Going forward, UK soldiers could be tried for murder, amongst other grave offences, committed against Kenyans in Kenya.

Kenyan MPs voted Wednesday (Apr. 12) to amend a defence agreement with the Government of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

The amended deal will now go to the Kenyan Ministry of Defence for further negotiation with their British counterparts.

The murder of a 21-year-woman prompted the move.

Agnes Wanjiru went missing after she was seen walking out of a bar with British soldiers in 2012.
