Exiled Pakistani reporter shot dead in Kenya | DW News

Pakistani journalist Arshad Sharif was shot dead in Kenya, his wife and Kenyan authorities said Monday. Sharif was shot and killed by police at a roadstop in Nairobi late Sunday while traveling by car.

Local police claimed the killing was a case of “mistaken identity,” as Kenyan authorities were on the hunt for a similar vehicle which was involved in a child abduction.

The Independent Police Oversight Authority (IPOA) in Kenya which investigates deaths and serious injuries caused by police action has launched a probe into the incident.
