NUN KILLED BY GUNMAN IN SOUTH AFRICA

          DURBAN, South Africa (CWNews.com) - A German nun serving in South Africa was found dead of a gunshot wound four days after she disappeared, a police spokesman said on Monday.

          Sister Theodelind Schreck, 57, was principal of a school near Durban. She disappeared on Wednesday after seeing her nephew, and her body was found Sunday in woods on the way back to the Holy Childhood Convent School. Police said they believe the motive was robbery.

          A school spokesman said the community has been shocked by the killing. "People are very angry that such a terrible thing could happen to such a dedicated person," said the spokesman. "Sister Theodelind Schreck was dedicated to her teaching and religious duties," said Ben Ngubane, premier of KwaZulu-Natal province. "Violence remains violence, irrespective of motivation."
