UN humanitarian chief says up to 600,000 people displaced in Kenya's violence

HELSINKI, Finland (AP) -- U.N. humanitarian chief John Holmes said Monday that up to 600,000 people have been displaced in Kenya during weeks of postelection violence.

"There are something like 300,000 people displaced in camps ... (and) beyond those 300,000 there are probably just as many who are not in camps who have gone back to their homelands ... or are sheltering with friends and neighbors somewhere else," Holmes told reporters in Helsinki after arriving from a visit to the East African country.
