'Horrendous Abuses' by Kenya Police



The BBC has reported on a series of human rights abuses being perpetrated by Kenya's Western-funded anti-terrorism unit.

BBC wrote, Kenya's Western-funded anti-terrorism unit has carried out a series of killings and "enforced disappearances" during its fight against militant Islamists, a rights group says.

"Horrendous" activities were taking place "right under the noses" of the government, Western embassies and the UN, Human Rights Watch (HRW) said.

The US and UK fund the unit.

The unit was set up in 2003, five years after al-Qaeda simultaneously bombed the US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania. More than 200 people were killed in what was then the most high-profile attack by al-Qaeda.
