A convoy of four minibuses carrying 24 American tourists was held up and robbed by two bandits June 17 near the popular Maasai Mara Game Reserve. The bandits took cash and made off with four hostages, who later that day were released unharmed. Two days later three Maasai men were arrested who reportedly confessed to the crime as well as to a similar robbery of foreign tourists inside the park last month. Whether these arrests will resolve the security problem around the reserve remains to be seen. One official stated that the high incidence of car-jacking in the district is a result of police complicity.
