Autopsies on at least 112 bodies of cult victims exhumed from shallow graves in Kenya’s coastal Kilifi County have ruled out organ harvesting.

Government pathologists said some of the victims died of starvation, strangulation and suffocation.

Kenyan police are expected to dig up more graves in search of victims of the cult whose leader, Pastor Paul Mackenzie, allegedly encouraged them to fast to death in order to go to heaven.

Mr Mackenzie is in police custody pending investigations.

The Kenyan Red Cross said that 360 people had been reported missing, while the authorities say at least 60 others have been rescued alive.

President William Ruto has formed a commission of inquiry to investigate the deaths of the followers of the Christian cult.
