DUBAI: A Dubai-based radio network says one of its journalists was killed in a boat collision while on assignment in the Seychelles.

The Arabian Radio Network says Rebecca Davidson, a New Zealand native, was killed late on Friday when the vessel she was aboard struck another boat in the Indian Ocean archipelago.

Another colleague was injured.

Davidson, 35, deputy head of programming at the network's news centre, was working on travel-related stories for the station Dubai Eye.

Seychelles maritime authorities said on Saturday they have opened an investigation into the incident, which occurred between the main Mahe island and Sainte Anne Island.
