At Least 50 Die in Kenya Church Inferno

ABC News: At Least 50 Die in Kenya Church Inferno

A man admitted with serious burns lies covered in ointment at the Coast General Hospital, in Mombasa, Kenya, Tuesday, Jan. 1, 2008. Youths protesting against the outcome of the Dec. 27, 2007 presidential elections set him on fire. Kenyans ventured warily out in search of food on Tuesday after the post-election violence that had convulsed the country for four days generally calmed, but many shops remained shuttered and sporadic tribal violence continued.

What kind of country have we become where we address our differences by setting each other on fire?
