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.
