The prosecutor of the International Criminal Court met Monday with members of a self-help group in a Nairobi slum that saw some of the most brutal acts committed during Kenya's 2007-2008 postelection violence.

Luis Moreno Ocampo said he visited Kenya's crime-prone Mathare slums to understand the views of some of the victims of election violence, which killed more than 1,000 people. The Mathare slum is known for its high crime rates and the widespread production and consumption of homemade alcohol.

The prosecutor has said he believes crimes against humanity were committed during the violence. Judges at the ICC last month authorized Moreno Ocampo to open an investigation.

"My duty is to understand the views of the victims," Moreno Ocampo said. "It was a short visit and we saw just a little group but this is the beginning. It is important for us to understand what happened to them and how they feel."

Moreno Ocampo arrived in Kenya on Saturday for a five-day visit to meet with victims.

He visited the Mwelu Foundation, a self-help group in Mathare that trains youth in photography, television production and journalism with the hope that they can use this skills to break out of the cycle of poverty.
