NAIROBI (Reuter) - A shopkeeper walked into a Kenyan police station clutching four live rats and demanded that police arrest them for ruining his bread supply. 'I want these rats put in the cells and charged in court for the damage,' the Nation quoted the man as telling police in the western town of Busia.

'He was grilled to find out whether he was drunk or insane but was found to be sober and sound of mind and advised to contact the Public Health Officer,' the newspaper said. It did not say what happened to the rats.
