Kenya police exhume remains from suspected Christian cult graves

Kenyan police have exhumed human remains from more than a dozen suspected graves in the east of the country amid an investigation into followers of a Christian cult who believed they would go to heaven if they starved themselves to death.
Police began exhuming bodies on Friday, said Charles Kamau, a detective in the town of Malindi near the Shakahola forest in Kilifi county, where police rescued 15 members of the Good News International Church last week, according to footage broadcast by Citizen TV.
The leader of the church, Paul Mackenzie, also identified in reports as Paul Nthenge Mackenzie, was arrested.
NTV reported that Mckenzie has staged a hunger strike in his cell since his arrest last week.
