The brutal killing of a human rights advocate in Tonga has sent shockwaves through the wider community.

Polikalepo Kefu was known for his work with Tonga's Red Cross, the local media association, and as a voice for youth.

He was also president of the local LGBTQI+ rights group who want to make sure his death is not brushed under the carpet.

Dominic Godfrey reports.
