The friends and colleagues of a British man killed in the Nairobi Mall siege have described how he died attempting to save the lives of a group of children taking part in a cookery competition his company was supporting.
Speaking to The Standard, Dipak Shah, Mr Shah's manager, said:
"He was there with the kids, as a representative as we were a sponsor of the programme.
“He was trying to negotiate the freedom of the children in order for him to be taken as a hostage. Some had managed to save their lives but unfortunately he, and others, did not. It was a heroic and brave act - a true reflection of his soul.
"He was a wonderful person who always went out of his way, beyond the call of duty, to help others.
