Negotiators trying to break the deadlock between Kenya's government and the opposition are planning to relocate to a secret location.

A senior aide to former UN secretary general Kofi Annan says the negotiators plan to move to an undisclosed location and make no public statements for the next 48 to 72 hours.

The goal is to meet far from the media spotlight in hopes of reaching an agreement, the aide told CNN.

The African country has been badly hit by the violence unleashed after President Mwai Kibaki won the December 27 election.

The opposition claims voting was rigged while international observers have cited flaws during vote-counting.

The UN estimates that around 600,000 people have been displaced in Kenya following the violence.
