Two Mass Graves Discovered in Tana River

Two mass graves have this morning been confirmed in Tana River area, Kenya, by local police chief Aggrey Adoli.

The total number of bodies is unkown and it is uncertain if this will translate into a higher death toll from ethnic clashes that have taken place in the area in recent weeks.

The discovery was made by a team of officers conducting investigations and disarmament in the region. Security forces are awaiting court orders to embark on the gruesome exhumation process.

The Government of Kenya has variously been accused of taking time to enforce security in the Tana Delta region where more than 100 Kenyans have been killed in recent inter-ethnic rivalries.
