Kenya to release cult victims’ bodies to families

# Kenyan authorities are today due to release the bodies of several people linked to a doomsday starvation cult in a case that shocked the country and the world. The remains are the first to be handed over to their families after nearly a year of painstaking work to identify them using DNA. Hundreds of bodies, including those of children, have been exhumed from shallow mass graves discovered in April last year in a remote wilderness inland from the Indian Ocean town of Malindi.
