(BBC) Archbishop of Canterbury makes Kenya detour on way to Iceland

The Archbishop of Canterbury has made a detour of more than 8,000 miles to visit Kenya – on his way to Iceland.

Archbishop Justin Welby, who arrived on Saturday night, gave sermons at All Saints Cathedral on Sunday morning.

He made the “last-minute” 24-hour trip to offer condolences after the Westgate centre attack, Lambeth Palace said.

He is also meeting conservative Church leaders who are in Nairobi for this week’s conference of the traditionalist Anglican group, Gafcon.
