Missing Kenyan Activist Caroline Mwatha Found Dead

Missing Kenyan activist Caroline Mwatha has been found dead, police have told the BBC.

Ms Mwatha worked documenting extrajudicial police killings but police believe she may have died from abortion-related complications.

Six people have been held in connection with her death, Kenya's Director of Criminal Investigations said.

Ms Mwatha disappeared last Wednesday and efforts to find her spawned the trending hashtag #FindCarolineMwatha.


The BBC's Ferdinand Omondi in Nairobi says sources indicate that Ms Mwatha's body is at the City Mortuary in Nairobi.

Her family and colleagues say they had looked for her in many places in the past few days, including the mortuary where she was found.
