I don't want to say too much

but this is a story that is really unfortunate.  A video of the beating of inmates in a Kenyan jail has surfaced.  I will provide the link to the BBC article for those of you who want to find out more and see the video.  However, please be aware that the images on film are deeply disturbing.

"Kenya's vice-president has condemned the alleged assault of prisoners by warders and ordered an investigation.  The incident, shown on Kenyan TV, was filmed secretly on a mobile phone and shows naked inmates at a Nairobi jail on the ground as warders beat them." (BBC Online)
