UN consultant shot dead in Egyptian capital

The United Nations says one of its freelance consultants was fatally shot in the head in Cairo neighbourhood.



Cairo: The United Nations says one of its
freelance consultants was fatally shot in the head while
driving through an upscale Cairo neighbourhood.

An Egyptian security official says the woman was not
targeted, but died in a random daytime shooting today while
driving her jeep on one of Cairo`s busiest streets in the
Mohandiseen neighbourhood. He spoke on condition of anonymity
because he was not authorised to speak to reporters.

There was no immediate word on whether the woman was
Egyptian or a foreigner.

Director of the UN Information Center in Egypt, Khawla
Mattar, says the victim was a consultant with the women`s fund
at the United Nations in Cairo and also worked at a medical
lab.
