Kenya pupils return after teachers’ strike suspended
Millions of Kenyan pupils have returned to school after teachers suspended their five-week strike over pay.
The unions say they are complying with a court decision, which gave the two sides 90 days to resolve the dispute.
The row is over a court-ordered pay rise of at least 50%, which the government is challenging, saying it is unaffordable.
The strike had led to the government closing all public schools.

The million pupils who are set to sit public exams this month had been allowed to go to school, but no other teaching was going on.
Private schools were also told to shut but they challenged the order and were allowed to continue teaching. Hong Kong’s former leader Donald Tsang has appeared in court, charged with misconduct in public office.
The allegations, which surfaced after he ended his term in 2012, relate to a bargain rental deal for a luxury flat and disclosure of personal interests.
He has since been under investigation by Hong Kong’s anti-corruption body.
Mr Tsang was released on bail with a 100,000 Hong Kong dollar bond ($13,000; £8,500), after a short court appearance on Monday.
The BBC’s Juliana Liu in Hong Kong says he looked tense during the proceedings. He is due to reappear in court on 13 November.
Mr Tsang is the highestranking official to face a corruption trial in Hong Kong, but in a statement released to the media he said: “I have every confidence that the court will exonerate me after its proceedings.”
