A radical Muslim preacher wanted in connection with an acid attack on two British teenagers in Zanzibar has been shot by police, it was reported.
Sheikh Issa Ponda Issa was hit in the shoulder with a tear gas canister as he tried to escape from officers after being cornered near Tanzania's capital Dar es Salaam, The Sunday Mirror said.
Friends Katie Gee and Kirstie Trup, both 18, continue to be treated in hospital and are said to be "well rested and comfortable".
The women were admitted to Chelsea and Westminster Hospital in London on Friday where they are receiving treatment for burns inflicted in an unprovoked attack while they were on a volunteering holiday on the island, off the coast of Tanzania.
Family members of both teenagers are keeping a bedside vigil, after they were flown home and immediately sent to the capital's regional burns centre.
A hospital spokesman confirmed the pair, from north London, continue to be treated by medics. Their conditions are described as "stable". He said: "The patients are well rested and comfortable at the hospital. They have been with their families all day. Doctors are continuing to assess treatment options for both patients."
Meanwhile, Tory MP Bill Cash, who sits on the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Tanzania, has urged the Foreign Office to further upgrade its travel warning for tourists visiting both Zanzibar and Tanzania because it was "more than just an ordinary criminal event".
The Foreign Office updated its Tanzania travel advice page on Friday with details of the attack and warns British nationals to "take care" and read its travel advice.
Mr Cash told the Sunday Express: "People need to be extra vigilant and the Foreign Office and High Commission need to make a very thorough evaluation of the threat, as these latest attacks would seem to be on religious grounds. The threat to tourists going to Tanzania and Zanzibar needs to be upgraded without doubt."
Miss Gee has already taken to Twitter to say: "Thank you for all your support x".
