Kenyan 'Rafiki' film ban lifted for a week
After the ruling Mr Mutua said that it would be a tragedy and a shame to have homosexual films define the Kenyan culture. In the film, directed, written and co-produced by Ms Kahiu, the girls are separated by their communities.

Environment Canada issued a warning for much of the eastern Ontario region ahead of the tornado that saw high winds level homes and flip vehicles.

This fast-moving squall line, it said, was located from eight kilometres northeast of Gatineau to seven kilometres northwest of Althorpe, and moving east at 80 kilometres per hour. "They're working in risky conditions and, at times, are not able to start repairs until the wind weakens".

Three people were seriously injured as a result of the storm, including one person who has been listed in critical condition. About 11,000 residents in the area were without power Friday because of the storm.
