Briton freed without charge after Westgate attack

30 September 2013, 15:51

London - Kenyan police have released a British man without charge after he was arrested in Nairobi following the attack on Westgate shopping mall by Al-Shabaab militants, British sources said on Monday.

"We can confirm that a British national has been released from custody in Nairobi," a spokeswoman for the Foreign Office said.

A diplomatic source added: "As far as we're aware he's free to go."

British media reported that the man was aged 35 and of Somali origin. He was reportedly arrested while trying to fly out of Nairobi's Jomo Kenyatta International Airport a week ago, as the siege continued.

He apparently attracted attention because of bruising to his face, his dark glasses and suspicious behaviour.

The four-day bloodbath at Westgate shopping mall, which security forces brought to an end last Tuesday, left at least 67 people dead.

Al-Shabaab militants have claimed responsibility for the attack.
