Kenyan police attract complaints for brutality in curfew enforcement


Kenya’s Independent Policing Oversight Body reports that it received 87 complaints covering 31 incidents in which injuries were linked to the actions of police officers and 15 deaths between curfew’s imposition on March 27 and June 5. In April, Human Rights Watch accused the police of brutality in imposing the curfew from the beginning, including whipping, kicking, and teargassing people.
