Masques of Nyarlathotep
Carlyle Expedition Clipping #8
NAIROBI (Reuters)—Five Nandi tribesmen, convicted
ringleaders of the vicious Carlyle Expedition massacre,
were executed this morning after a short,
To the end, the tribesmen steadfastly refused to reveal where
they had hidden the bodies of the white leaders of the expedition.
Mr. Harvis, acting for the Colony, cleverly implied
throughout the trial that the massacre was racial in motivation,
and that the fair-skinned victims were taken to a secret location,
there to suffer the most savage treatment.
Miss Erica Carlyle, defeated in her efforts to rescue her
brother, left several weeks ago, but is surely comforted now by
the triumph of justice.
