Nairobi — Human rights activists are accusing Kenyan police of executing three women who allegedly attacked a police station after pledging allegiance to the Islamic State group.

In a video posted on social media by a human rights activist, two of the women can be seen sprawled on the ground with severe burns on their bodies. A man with a rifle opens fire at them.

Another video posted online shows a woman burnt and lying on her back while being questioned about the attack.
