Kenya Investigating Venezuelan Diplomat's Death

Kenyan police say a top Venezuelan diplomat has been found dead and that she appears to have been strangled.

Nairobi Police Chief Anthony Kibuchi said the body of the acting Venezuelan envoy and charge d'affaires, Olga Fonseca, was found Friday at the official residence in the Kenyan capital.

Kenyan police also say they have begun interviewing two staff members at the residence.

The Venezuelan Foreign Ministry mourned the career diplomat's death and said it was confident the Kenyan authorities would catch those responsible.
