Hammond: Possible more Brits killed in Kenya attack

Defence Secretary Philip Hammond said it was possible more Brits died in the Nairobi shopping centre attack, and that the death toll could rise once the building was secure. Speaking this evening, he said:

Our current best estimate is we now have six British nationals who have died in this incident. Of the additional two, one is confirmed and another one we believe to be a British national and we are awaiting final confirmation but we are pretty certain we now have six British nationals who have died.

The total number of people dead we believe exceeds 60 and it is possible we will discover further British nationals once the building is fully secure.
