Nairobi - A female tourist has been shot dead in Mombasa and her partner injured in the coastal city's old town.
The tourist was shot at point blank range by unknown assailants in an area known as Mlango wa Papa (Sharks mouth) in Bondeni Thursday evening.
Her male partner was shot severally and taken to hospital with gunshot wounds.
Nothing was stolen in the attack.
The killing comes just a few weeks after a Russian tourist was killed in yet another incident that will set pulses racing in the city over incidences of insecurity.
The woman whose nationality has not been established
was killed within the tourist attraction site of Fort Jesus, said Robert
Kitur, local police commander.
"The woman was shot dead a few metres from where a Russian tourist was also killed last month," Kitur said.For the latest on national news, politics, sport, entertainment and more follow us on Twitter and like our Facebook page!
