The bodies of three children and their parents have been recovered from a burial site in Kenya alongside more than 50 other Christian cult members who believed they would ‘meet Jesus’ in Heaven if they starved themselves to death.

Kenyan police are today continuing their search in the Shakahola forest in the country’s east for victims of the ‘starvation cult’, with officials recovering 58 bodies so far.

The death toll, which has been rising steadily over the past two days as exhumations have been carried out in the forest, could rise further as the Kenyan Red Cross has said 112 people have been reported missing to a tracing desk it operates.

Five members of the same family – three children and their parents – were found in a one shallow grave. They are not believed to have been from the area.

The cult was called the Good News International Church and its leader, Paul Mackenzie, was arrested following a tip-off that suggested the existence of shallow graves containing the bodies of at least 31 of his followers.
