Front Page: Conspiracy in Kenya, Caffeine, and EU Biofuels

  • Evidence suggests the violence that has rocked Kenya for weeks following a contested election, was planned. A country ethnically divided between the Kalenjin and the Kikuyus, the unrest spreads far from the slums of Nairobi to the Rift Valley in western Kenya, where it has devolved into battle. Clues that point to premeditation include: flyers circulated in the Rift Valley before the election telling all Kikuyus to leave or be killed, a government document outlining "ethnic tensions/violence as a last resort," and a huge weapons stash found in a government car. Dan Juma, the acting deputy director of the Kenya Human Rights Commission said, “it wasn’t like people just woke up and started fighting each other. It was organized.” Adds Alfred Mutua, a spokesman for the Kenyan government, “this is ethnic cleansing."
  • A study of 1,000 pregnant women shows that caffeine may increase the risk of miscarriage. Women drinking the equivalent of two small cups of coffee, were twice as likely to miscarry, according to the research. De-Kun Li, leader of the study said, "if they have to drink caffeine-containing beverages, they should reduce the amount to one cup a day at the most."
  • The EU is backing away from proposed targets for the introduction of biofuels. An audit committee says the current method of producing biofuels is harming the environment. Critics also call attention to the effect on food prices that using farm land to produce the fuel will cause, and advocate against biofuel crops being grown on wetlands and grasslands. EU Committee chairman Tim Yeo said, "Biofuels can reduce greenhouse gas emissions from road transport—but at present most biofuels have a detrimental impact on the environment overall."
