Kenyan police chief David Kimaiyo has stepped down in the wake of the latest al-Shabaab attack in the country.

Kimaiyo had come under fire to quit after he was criticised for failing to step up security following the militant group's attack on Nairobi's Westgate shopping mall last year which killed 67 people.

President Uhuru Kenyatta said had accepted his resignation and also confirmed he would be appointing a new interior minister in a reshuffle.
