Body of slain Pakistani journalist leaves Kenya

The body of well-known Pakistani journalist Arshad Sharif, who was killed on Sunday by Kenyan police, is headed home, according to Pakistani media outlet Dunya News where he worked before leaving the country in August.

His body is expected to arrive in Islamabad later on Tuesday afternoon after a stopover in Doha, Qatar.

The journalist will be cremated on Thursday at a cemetery in Islamabad, his widow Javeria Siddique is quoted as saying.

Mr Sharif was “fatally wounded” while he was a passenger in a moving vehicle after it failed to stop at a roadblock, according to the Kenya police.


Officers had set up the roadblock as they were looking for a stolen car.
