    Two more Koreans were killed overseas and another injured in violent incidents overseas, the Foreign Ministry here said on Sunday.

    Around 2 a.m. on Sunday, a Korean was shot dead and another wounded by a robber in Palapye, about 270 km northeast of Gaborone, the capital of Botswana. They were sleeping at the staff quarters of a Korean builder.

    The previous morning, a Korean in his early 50s was shot by a gunman while driving in Baguio in the Philippines, 200 km north of the capital of Manila. He was rushed to a nearby hospital but died of his injuries. The man was the seventh Korean to be violently killed in the Philippines this year alone.

    Police are reportedly going after suspects based on witness accounts of a couple of people running from the scene.
