Kenyan officials confirm arrest of Woolwich suspect

The Kenyan government has confirmed Woolwich murder suspect Michael Adebolajo was arrested in the country, but under a different name.

A spokesman said he was taken to court before being handed to British authorities.

Kenya's government arrested Michael Olemindis Ndemolajo. We handed him to British security agents in Kenya and he seems to have found his way to London and mutated to Michael Adebolajo.

The Kenyan government cannot be held responsible for what happened to him after we handed him to British authorities.
