Police deny arresting British terror suspects

28 November 2013, 08:00

Nairobi - Police on Wednesday dismissed claims by the British government that two of its nationals were arrested in Mombasa after being found in possession of hand grenades.

"The reports are mere speculations. I have not received any reports about the arrest of British nationals in the whole of Mombasa County. We do not have any British suspects in our police custody," Mombasa Police Commander Robert KiturKitur told Xinhua on telephone.

Western media had quoted the Foreign Office as saying it is investigating the reported arrest. But the office has been unable to confirm it.

According to those reports, a spokesman for the Foreign and Commonwealth Office said British authorities are looking into the issue and are ready to offer any consular assistance.

"We are looking into reports of two British nationals detained in Kenya. We stand ready to offer consular assistance," the spokesperson was quoted as saying.

The reports were sensitive after a group of terrorists stormed an upscale shopping mall in Nairobi, killing at least 67 people and injuring 175 others.
