In Kenya, masked men carrying guns and machetes attacked a group of Italian tourists on Wednesday.

Witnesses said one man was taken to hospital after being shot but was not thought to be in a life-threatening condition.

The attack took place at tourist villas in the coastal town of Malindi.

It happened as Kenyans prepared to head to the polls on March 4 and as foreign tourists were warned against travelling to the East African nation because of pre-election violence.
