Nairobi - Kenyan police discovered on Monday the torso of a child they suspect was the victim of a ritual killing.
Villagers found the headless and limbless six-year-old boy, who went missing last week, in a pit in the Igembe district of eastern Kenya, local police commander Hebson Kadege said.
Ritual killing is still common in many African tribes that believe in witchcraft. Igembe lies in the heart of a region well known for the production of mild narcotic leaves called khat.
