New Charge Over Stortford Tourists Attack

A second suspect has been charged in connection with the deadly attack on a Bishop's Stortford couple on holiday on a remote Kenyan island near Somalia.

Issa Sheikh Said has denied to a court that he was involved in the attack that left tourist David Tebbutt dead and his wife Judith kidnapped earlier this month on the Kenyan coast.

Police have charged Said with robbery with violence and kidnapping.

Ali Babitu Kololo, the first suspect to be charged with involvement in the attack on the couple, told a court on Monday that the armed men forced him at gunpoint to cooperate.

He said he voluntarily went to the police the next day to report the crime.

After the attack the gunmen fled north by boat to Somalia, where the woman is being held.
