Kenyan lawmakers adopted amendments to a controversial media bill Thursday despite an opposition walk out and international concern about press freedom. The bill, which was passed in October but sent back to parliament with presidential changes, will see journalists and media outlets policed by a special quasi-government body. It also calls for huge fines and could force the shutdown of news organisations.
