Execution

Declassified UK has discovered that British intelligence agency MI6 has supported a covert Kenyan paramilitary team responsible for a series of extrajudicial killings in the mostly Muslim coastal region.

According to their investigation, MI6 has played ‘a key role in identifying suspects for a “kill or capture” list and finding and fixing their location.’

‘When these extrajudicial killings happen, Muslims feel they are under siege because they cannot comprehend why the government cannot arrest these people and take them to court, instead of killing them’, the chair of Kenyan human rights organisation Muhuri said.
