- Kenyan police have so far recovered 58 bodies from mass graves in a forest in eastern Kenya, thought to be followers of a Christian cult who believed they would go to heaven if they starved themselves.
- “Police rescued 29 alive, while 58 people have been confirmed dead, among them 50 bodies exhumed from shallow graves,” Kenya’s National Police Service tweeted Monday evening.
- Paul Mackenzie Nthege, the leader of the cult, known as the Good News International Church was arrested after police received a tip-off that his vast land on the Shakahola forest in the Kilifi County of eastern Kenya, contained mass graves.
