DNA samples from 93 cases have been collected awaiting results.

At the same time, thirty-four (34) people have been arrested in connection with the Shakahola massacre.

The CS said that more graves in the forest will be dug upon completion of the second phase of the postmortem exercise.

"Unfortunately, we have evidence of more graves in Shakahola forest. Therefore, the suspension is meant to allow this postmortem exercise of the 129 bodies to make sure that we are able to free this hospital's mortuary," he said.

Further, the search will extend to new areas as police have established that people are trying to escape to nearby parks in Tsavo and Galana Kulalu.
