A British diplomat seriously wounded while trying to escape a gang of car hijackers in Africa died yesterday. Graeme Gibson, 43, second secretary in the British High Commission's commercial department in Nairobi, Kenya, was shot in the neck in November after a car chase through the city.

Mr Gibson was paralysed by the shooting and flown home to the UK. He died in the National Spinal Injury Centre at Stoke Mandeville Hospital, Buckinghamshire, as a result of complications from his injuries.
