Kenya police: Army joins search for missing Briton

A Kenyan police spokesman says that the military has joined a widening search for a British widow kidnapped after her husband was shot dead as they vacationed on a remote island resort.

Eric Kiraithe said Monday Kenyan authorities are leaving no stone unturned in their search for the missing woman and that police and military were combing the area.

Six gunmen shot her husband then carried her off in a boat from the couple's cottage on Kiwayu Island near the border with Somalia. The nationalities and motives of the attackers were unclear.
