Kenya. Rift Valley province. Nakuru. 25.01.2008. A black Kikuyu policeman with military outfitts stands close to a group of men. He wears a helmet on the head. He also carries a wood stick in his left hand and a M16 machine gun in his right hand. M16 (more formally United States Rifle, Caliber 5.56 mm, M16) is the U.S. military designation for a family of rifles derived from the ArmaLite AR-15 and further developed by Colt starting in the mid-20th century.. The policeman is on duty because of the Inter-ethnic strife. Ethnic cleansing and purification. The Kikuyus are Kenya's most populous ethnic group. © 2008 Didier Ruef
