An American woman was fatally shot by three men who stole her car in a Nairobi suburb over the weekend, police said Sunday. U.S. Embassy officials confirmed a woman had been killed but would give no details until her next of kin had been informed. Witnesses said the men approached the woman and shot her when she apparently refused to hand over the car.

Your State Department advisory regarding robberies in Kenya and in particular the Masai Mara (News & Briefs, March 8) troubled me because I have just returned from this wonderful country and its popular game park for the second time. Never did I feel threatened nor did I ever feel suspicious of any Kenyan. To the contrary, they (made me) feel very special and treated me with the utmost respect and courtesy. I take with great offense that Kenya was singled out as an "alert" to tourists as I uphold East Africa as my favorite, special corner of the world.
