MOSCOW, July 6 /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s Union of Tour Operators is checking information about the death of a Russian tourist in Kenya, Union spokeswoman Irina Tyurina said on Sunday.
“So far, Russian tour operators do not have any information,” the spokeswoman said. “We have sent a request to the Kenyan tourist business to provide information because it is absolutely unclear whether the tourist traveled on her own or not. We are waiting for an answer.”
The French news agency France Presse reported on Sunday citing a police report that a Russian female tourist had died in the hospital of Kenya’s port city of Mombasa after an armed assault.
The tourist was touring the 16th century Portuguese-built Fort Jesus with two other people when three unidentified gunmen opened fire and grabbed a bag containing cameras, phones and other personal belongings, the agency said, referring to a police report.
“It is unfortunate the lady who was shot has succumbed to injuries,” France Presse quoted Mombasa’s deputy divisional police chief Tom Okoth as saying and confirming the woman’s nationality as Russian.
The Russian consulate in Kenya has not yet confirmed this information.
