The woman, who was said to be seven months pregnant, was
shot in her home in Mtwara on Thursday, the BBC reported on its website.
Local security forces were reacting to a protest from some
residents against the planned construction of a gas pipeline from Mtwara to the
commercial capital of Dar es Salaam.
The protesters want a gas processing plant to be built in
Mtwara instead of the pipeline which will not create as many long-term jobs.
Oil companies have recently unearthed large gas deposits off
Tanzania with more discoveries hoped for. They will require the building of
much gas infrastructure onshore.
