A Chinese tourist stabbed a woman to death and seriously wounded her husband after demanding they vacate a table at a luxury Kenyan safari lodge, police said Tuesday.

The incident occurred at Keekorok Lodge in Masai Mara, a large game reserve in southwestern Kenya, where the couple -- also Chinese -- were having dinner.

The assailant, identified as Lee Changqin, is said to have demanded that they leave their table, prompting an argument, before he stabbed them both in the chest.

Rift Valley county police chief Gideon Kibunjah said the tourist was arrested and undergoing interrogation before being arraigned in court.

"The woman died while undergoing treatment in hospital while her husband is still in hospital," Kibunjah told AFP by telephone. "The man is in custody."
