Kenya | More protests coming over rail line being built through Nairobi NP

NAIROBI (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - Demonstrators plan to protest against a railway line being built inside Nairobi National Park, which they say threatens wildlife and people in Kenya, after their case was dismissed on Tuesday.


A court said that it cannot stop construction of a 6 km (4 mile) railway bridge, which the China Road and Bridge Corporation started building last month through the capital’s sprawling sanctuary for lions, giraffes and zebras.
