Mungiki massacre in Nakuru

The unrest began in Nakuru late Thursday night when groups of Kikuyus -- the tribe that President Kibaki belongs to -- poured into the city's streets and started hunting members of the Luo and Kalenjin groups. Meanwhile, several thousand people in Nakuru have fled the violence, abandoning their homes in haste. Sophie Okiech, a mother of four, wasn't even able to grab a blanket when she fled. Members of a hostile ethnic group had threatened to lynch her. All night long, young men besieged her house, sharpening their knives and machetes. In the morning, Okiech fled to the police station. This kind of ethnic cleansing is currently happening everywhere.
