Missing Kenyan activist, Caroline Mwatha found dead.

Missing Kenyan activist, Caroline Mwatha has been found dead.

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

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

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

Ms Mwatha worked for the Dandora Community Justice Centre (DCDJ), documenting extra-judicial police killings on the Dandora estate in the east of the capital, Nairobi.

Amnesty International had tweeted about its concern for Ms Mwatha on Monday and said it had still hoped to find her alive.
