Francis, the Johannesburg bureau chief for the British television news agency WTN, was killed in an ambush 10 miles (16 kilometers) northwest of the capital, Bujumbura. His interpreter and driver were also killed, and WTN cameraman Victor Dhlamini was wounded. Dhlamini said their attackers were clearly bandits who "just wanted money" and stole the journalists' cash, television equipment, and other belongings.
