SEMPORNA: A Taiwanese tourist was shot dead and his wife is believed to have been kidnapped when gunmen raided a resort in Pulau Pom Pom in Semporna in the east coast of Sabah.
The 57-year-old tourist identified as Lim Min Hsu was found with two gunshot wounds along the corridor of the water village resort at about 1am Friday.
His 58-year-old Taiwanese wife identified as Chang An Wei was missing following the incident.
