Bodies vanish from Nairobi slum
by UPI

NAIROBI, Kenya - Fourteen bodies disappeared after a shootout between police and violent gangs in a Kenyan slum.

Officers of the General Services Unit, a paramilitary police group, killed at least 22 people Monday night and Tuesday morning in the Mathare area of Nairobi, The Nation reported. Police invaded the area after a gunman killed two police officers.

Only seven bodies were taken to the City Mortuary. A mutilated head was found later near a girl's school and a torso was found in a river.

Violence has continued in the neighborhood with about 300 deaths this week, The Scotsman reported.

Residents said police acted violently, beating women they found alone to find out where their husbands were and also beating people they found sleeping.

"We do not know where to run or hide," said Wandia Wanjiku. "On one hand we are afraid of the Mungiki group while on the other we fear the police who are also extorting money and raping some of us during operations. Indeed, we are caught up in a serious dilemma since we are poor and have no where else to go."
