A SIXTH Briton has been confirmed as among those killed in the attack on Nairobi’s Westgate shopping centre.

The Foreign Office confirmed the news and said it could not rule out the possibility of further British casualties.

67 people were killed in the attack on the upmarket Nairobi mall and dozens of people are still reported missing.

Earlier this week Prime Minister David Cameron suggested six Britons may have died in the catastrophe and the Foreign Office confirmed this figure today. The person’s identity has not been revealed.

A spokesman said: “FCO can confirm a sixth British national has been identified amongst those killed in the tragedy in Nairobi. We are providing consular assistance.

“We have no information at this time that any further British nationals have been killed although we cannot rule out the potential for further British casualties and we continue to stay in close contact with the Kenyan authorities as their investigations continue.”
