Nairobi - Human rights activists say hundreds of men who disappeared in 2008 during a military crackdown on a militia in western Kenya remain missing, as human bones are turning up in drains, rivers and shallow graves.

Job Bwonya of Western Kenya Human Rights Watch said on Wednesday more than 300 Kenyans have been reported missing and he has fully documented 188 cases.

A Switzerland-based aid group, Track Impunity Always, said it will work with Bwonya's group to submit more than 100 cases of disappeared Kenyans to the United Nations Working Group on Enforced or Involuntary Disappearances within the next month.

More than 500 deaths linked to the crackdown against the Sabaot Land Defence Force were documented by rights groups.

The army says it has done nothing wrong and is unaware of any disappearances.
