Uk Man's Wife Killed In Carjack On S Africa Honeymoon by erumena(m): 9:51pm On Nov 14, 2010
A woman on honeymoon with her British husband has been killed in Cape Town after being abducted by armed men, police in South Africa have said.

Two hijackers ambushed the taxi she and her husband were in on Saturday night, before leaving him behind unharmed. Her body was later found in the car.

The 28-year-old - who is not British - and her husband, 31, have not been named.

Regional tourist authorities said the couple married two weeks ago.

Western Cape police spokesman, Lieutenant Colonel Andre Traut, said the car had been hijacked by two armed men at 11pm local time.

"The suspects drove off with the couple and the man was later dropped off unharmed. The body of the woman,  was found in the car in the Lingelethu West area.

"The families are in the process of being informed, and the couple's names are not yet being released."

Lt Col Traut also said the couple had arrived in the country on 12 November for their holiday, and that the hijackers had not been caught.

The Foreign Office in London said that it was aware of the incident and was offering consular assistance "to a British National who was involved and their family".
