In the slums of Nairobi, dead bodies of young, poor men are turning up on the streets almost every day. Suspected of being criminals, they are executed by the police - without charges, without trial.
Kenyan rights groups had demanded an investigation into the death of activist Caroline Mwatha a week after her disappearance. An autopsy has now confirmed the police report that she died during an abortion attempt.
At least 15 people have been reported killed in an attack on an upscale complex in Nairobi, Kenya claimed by Somalia-based extremist group al-Shabab. An explosion followed by gunfire was heard as the attack started.
Kenya's security agencies are under scrutiny following the latest attack on a hotel compound. Analysts say it's a sign that al-Shabab is still very much a force to be reckoned with.
Kenya has postponed a much anticipated ruling on homosexuality, to the great disappointment of human rights groups. They continue to hope for a verdict that decriminalizes same-sex relationships.
