Foreign tourists wait to board charter flights after checking out of their hotels in Kenya on Oct. 3, 201t. Nervous hotel owners are urging Kenya's government to step
up security in the area popular with tourists and rich Kenyans after last weekend's kidnapping of a French woman by Somali gunmen.

Four Europeans
were kidnapped
from the country in
the past six weeks
NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) -
France said yesterday that a
cancer-stricken quadriplegic
Frenchwoman kidnapped off a
Kenyan resort island appears to
have died in captivity in Soma-
lia, prompting Kenya to call the
death an act of terror against the
East African nation and France.
Kenya said it sent some 1,600
troops into Somalia last week-
end to hunt al-Shabab militants
because of the kidnapping of the
French woman and three other
Europeans from its country over
the last six weeks. The nation's
tourism minister told The Asso-
ciated Press that the invasion is

meant to push Islamist militants
away from Kenya's tourist desti-
nations.
Somali gunmen snatched
Marie Dedieu in the middle of
the night from her resort island
home near Lamu on Oct. 1. The
66-year-old, wheelchair-bound
woman suffered from cancer and
required special medications
several times a day, medicine her
captors did not take with them.
French officials said Dedieu's
state of health and the fact her
kidnappers "probably refused to
give her the medication we sent
her" likely led to the death. The
foreign ministry said her death
had not been absolutely con-
firmed but was the most likely
situation.
, "We are so, so sad. We have
lost a mother of this village. We
have not lost a foreigner. We have
lost a mother of the community,"
said Abdullah Fadhil, the prop-

erty manager at Dedieu's resi-
dence in Lamu. "We wish she
would be alive but because she
has been sick and I know that the
captors cannot give her the care
she requires ... she has been very
weak."
France's Foreign Ministry
said that unspecified "contacts"
told French officials that Dedieu
had died but the date and cir-
cumstances of her death were
not immediately known. It did
not elaborate.
The Kenyan government
offered its condolences and said
Dedieu died while in al-Shabab
captivity. Kenya maintains al-
Shabab is behind the recent kid-
nappings, though some analysts
have instead blamed pirates or
criminals.
"The kidnapping and deten-
tion of Marie Dedieu was a terror
act not only against her, but also
against Kenya, her home country

France and the entire world," the
Kenyan government statement
said.
After a weekly Cabinet meet-
ing with President Nicolas Sar-
kozy, Foreign Minister Alain
Juppe said Dedieu's death "isn't
totally confirmed but is more
than probable."
"Madame Dedieu was a
gravely ill 66-year-old woman,
afflicted with cancer (and) quad-
riplegic," he said. "Seizing a
woman in this state is an act of
barbarity."
. French officials have demand-
ed that her remains be handed
over, and residents in Lamu
remembered her as a kind
woman.
"She was my friend," said resi-
dent Beatrice Halua. "She knew
how to live with everyone: good
people, bad people. She was a
nice person. She had so many
friends."
