So-called Islamic State has claimed responsibility for an attempted knife attack last week on a Kenyan police officer that took place outside the US embassy in Nairobi.
The group's Amaq news agency claimed on Saturday the attacker, who was shot dead outside the embassy during the incident, was a "soldier" for the group.
"The person who carried out the stabbing of a guard outside the American embassy in Nairobi last Thursday was a soldier of Islamic State responding to calls to target coalition countries," Amaq said.
The US embassy said at the time of the attack that none of its staff had been involved in the incident.
A man has been shot dead outside the US Embassy in Nairobi after trying to attack a Kenyan police officer guarding an entrance, officials have confirmed.
Police chiefs in Kenya said the attacker was armed with a knife and was shot in "self defence", while the US Embassy confirmed there had been a shooting but said none of its staff were involved.
The motive of the attack was not immediately clear.
Six people have been killed in an attack by suspected Islamist militants from the Somali group al-Shabaab in northeast Kenya.
The governor of Mandera county, where the attack happened, told Reuters six people had been confirmed dead.
Kenya's Daily Nation said on its website the attack, which it blamed on al-Shabaab, happened early in the morning.
