Kenya V. Somalia

 Kenya has accused the  International Court of Justice of bias in favor of Somalia in a legal case, which concerns its maritime border, and involves 62,000 sq miles (160,000 sq km) triangle in the Indian Ocean. 

The area is thought to be rich in oil and gas. 

Somalia brought the case in 2014, saying the maritime frontier should follow on in the same direction as the land border, while Kenya argues that it has always been taken in a horizontal line from the point where the two countries meet at the coast.
