On Friday, Kenyan detectives discovered 29 additional bodies in their ongoing search for victims of a doomsday cult in the country’s southeast.

The death toll has now reached 179. Authorities have been searching for remains in shallow graves spread around the Shakahola forest this week, while hundreds of people are still missing.

A Kenyan court granted bail on Wednesday to Paul Mackenzie, the head of the Good News International Church, who is accused of urging his followers to starve their children and themselves to death so that they may get to paradise before the end of the world.
