Police in Kenya are holding three people in the coastal city of Mombasa, suspected of involvement in the ritual killing of children.

Relatives of the missing children have besieged the police station where the three are being held, demanding to be allowed to take revenge.

Twenty youngsters are known to have disappeared over the past six months and fear has gripped Mombasa.

Three mutilated bodies were recovered last week with missing limbs.

There is a belief among some in Africa that magic charms made with human body parts can help them become rich.
