An Australian teacher has been shot dead in the Kenyan capital of Nairobi.

Witnesses say Gabrielle Maina was attacked by armed men, possibly on motorbikes, while she walked along a road in the suburb of Karen.

The motive for the shooting is unknown, but it is believed it may have been a botched robbery. Police are investigating.

Ms Maina, from NSW, had been in Kenya since September 2015.

The school where she worked has released a statement to parents, offering condolences to her family.

More to come.
