Kenya Kidnappers face detection parade

Nairobi, 08 July-(ANA)-Suspected kidnappers being held by police in Nairobi are tol be subjected to a series of identification parades.

The police have called on people who may have been abducted before to turn up and find out if their kidnappers are among 13 suspects in police custody.

There has been an upsurge of kidnappings since January, but the majority of the cases have not been reported.
