Kenya rights group: bodies of 'disappeared' found


NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) - A human rights group said Tuesday it has found a dumping ground for bodies in Mount Elgon, where the army is cracking down on a brutal militia.

The Independent Medico-Legal Unit said human bones and five skulls were found in the foothills around Mount Elgon, an extinct volcano near the border with Uganda.

The Sabaot Land Defense Force, which claims to be fighting over land, had been terrorizing the Mount Elgon area since 2006 before the military intervened in march this year. Human rights group say it is responsible for hundreds of murders, rapes and mutilations.
