British man killed on Kenyan estate:

A FORMER British Army officer has been killed by an armed gang at his home in Kenya.

Lieutenant Colonel David Parkinson, 58, was killed with a machete after the suspected robbers, who were also carrying a gun, broke their way into his house in the early hours of Sunday morning, The Telegraph reported.

His wife Sonja managed to flee the attack and lock herself in a store room until the gang had left, only to return and find her husband dead, the newspaper said.

The couple were targeted at their Lolldaiga Hills cattle ranch in the town of Nanyuki, Laikipia in central Kenya.
