Environmental groups involved in talks at a United Nations conference in Kenya have accused the US of blocking an ambitious global response to plastic pollution.

Nairobi — Elephant poaching in the country has reduced by 50 per cent, Kenya Wildlife Service said.

The other counties with a high prevalence rate are Siaya (21 percent), Homabay (20.7 percent), Kisumu (16.3 percent), Migori (13.3 percent) and Busia (7.7 percent).

An estimated 1.25 million people are killed and a staggering 50 million are injured in traffic collisions each year. Yet, road safety remains a remarkably low political priority in cities around the world. In many cases, road safety is seen to be in direct conflict with other priorities, such as reducing congestion or shortening journey times.
