British Man Killed, Wife Kidnapped at Kenyan Resort

Erik Snyder/Thinkstock(NAIROBI) -- Attackers killed a British man and kidnapped his wife at a Kenyan resort, officials announced Sunday.

The couple first arrived at the Kiwayu Safari Village resort, which is near the Somali border, on Saturday. The resort features 18 private cabins near the beach.

The couple was attacked in their cottage. The man is believed to have resisted, prompting the attackers to open fire. The victim's wife was reportedly taken away in a boat.

The couple's identities have yet to be released. It also remains unclear where the attackers came from.

The British Foreign Office reportedly confirmed that the attack took place and is cooperating with Kenyan officials.
