Somalis Kidnap Disabled French Tourist

Posted on October 4, 2011


The Sydney Morning Herald reports that 66 year old Marie Dedieu was staying in a holiday resort on a Kenyan island some 30 miles off the Somalian coast, when she was kidnapped.

Marie was taken when ten armed men ambushed her and her partner in their resort hotel room, using her as a human shield as they fled to nearby boats and made their getaway.

Two Kenyan naval security officer’s were killed as their boat hit a a rock and capsized in pursuit of the kidnappers.

Another example of why Somalia would have to be the least desirable destination on earth in 2011.
