A UN investigator has called for the removal of Kenya's police commissioner and attorney general over a wave of alleged extrajudicial killings.

Philip Alston has completed a 10-day visit to Kenya to probe claims of arbitrary killings during the violence that broke out after elections in December 2007.

At a press conference he said: "Kenyan police are a law unto themselves. They kill often, with impunity."
