Kenyan police suspended after Nairobi shooting

Human rights groups have condemned the apparent execution of suspected robbers by the police in Kenya.

Kenyan authorities have suspended three policemen after a newspaper published a picture of an officer apparently shooting a man at point-blank range.

Britain is currently assisting with police reform in the country, but has said it will now review that programme.

The Kenyan police have often been accused of carrying out extra judicial killings, a practice which critics say the government has done little to end, as Will Ross reports from Nairobi.
