Margaret Muthoni returns to the wreckage of the Kenya Assemblies of God Pentecostal church, a day after it was torched by an angry mob. She was searching for her niece Miriam Ngendo, 6. "I was carrying her out of the church, but she fell. I had my six children with me and we had to run for safety. I could not go back for her." As Red Cross workers recovered the badly burned bodies, Margaret lifted one of the blankets covering them, screamed and dropped to her knees.
At least 30 Kikuyu people, many of them children, were killed when members of the Kalenjin tribe attached the church where they had taken refuge. Unrest and ethnic violence followed protests against disputed election results. President Mwai Kibaki, a Kikuyu, was suspected of rigging the vote to retain power.
