Group: Kenya police accused of using death squads in 2 deaths amid crackdown on terror groups

Kenyan police say a terror suspect was killed in a gun battle and present weapons to the media. Hours later another suspect accused of terror links is dead in what police described as a shootout.

Witnesses and the family of the slain suspects tell a different story: That the suspects were arrested without a fight. One was handcuffed, and both were executed.

Human rights group, Muslim for Human Rights, says that police last week targeted the two terror suspects for execution. The group said Wednesday Kenya maintains a police death squad tasked with eliminating suspects with links to terror groups.

The head of Kenya's Anti-Terrorism Police Unit, Boniface Mwaniki, denied that a death squad exists, calling the allegations "outrageous."
