Tony Blair's daughter, Kathryn Blair, was held at gunpoint whilst walking on a London street, in what was an attempted robbery. The incident involved two male suspects who came upon Kathryn and her boyfriend in Ivor Place, Marylebone on Monday, 16 September. According to the Daily Mail, the couple were walking their dog less than a mile from their home when the attempted robbery occurred.

The two suspects held the couple at gunpoint, threatening them with the gun but not using it. They were dressed in dark clothing and had hidden their faces: one with a scarf and the other with a balaclava. According to some reports, the robbers asked for jewellery and cash. The suspects have been linked to another burglary which took place half an hour earlier. The police are in the process of tracking the suspects' movements via CCTV.

Sadly the Mail has been using the incident to incite fear of a possible terrorist attack, with Blair family as the targets. It does seem somewhat unlikely; nevertheless a security expert made a statement to the British tabloid stating the incident "raises massive questions about [Kathryn's] personal safety."

The twenty-five-year-old was not injured and according to the Metropolitan Police (as reported by the BBC) "nothing was stolen."

The suspects are yet to be apprehended and police have requested that anyone with information should come forward. A spokesperson said, "We are appealing for the public's help to try and track down the man responsible and his accomplice. If you were out and about around this area on Monday night and saw something please get in touch." The police also promised 'Extra patrols will be taking place in and around the area over the coming days.' 

Kathryn is the third of Tony and Cherie Blair's four children and their only daughter. She, like her parents, is a barrister.
