Nairobi - A Kenyan government task force has failed to establish who killed a Muslim cleric whose assassination one year ago caused days of deadly violence.
Aboud Rogo Mohammed, who had been sanctioned by the United States government and the United Nations for supporting the al-Qaida-linked Somali Islamic extremist group al-Shabab, was shot dead in August 2012 as he drove his wife to a hospital in the coastal city of Mombasa.
The task force recommended Monday that a public inquest be opened. Rogo's wife, Hania Said Saggar, blames the police for her husband's killing. The police deny any involvement but have said that Mohammed belonged to a terror cell that planned to bomb Kenyan targets.
The Kenyan security forces have been accused of a series of extra-judicial killings.
