Kenyan police launched a manhunt after the body of a Bahraini female athlete was found with stab wounds in the town of Iten. Police say they are looking for the Ethiopian boyfriend of Damans Muthee Mutua, 28, who was born in Kenya but competed for Bahrain.
Police say Mutua’s body was found in “a state of decomposition” in the Rift Valley town of Iten reported AFP news agency. Mutua’s boyfriend was training at the same high-altitude centre as her and may have left the country, police say.
Mutua competed for Kenya as a junior athlete but later switched to running for Bahrain.
