British arrest in connection with Kenyan terrorist plot



Scotland Yard is assisting Kenyan police after a British man was arrested in connection with a plot to carry out terrorism attacks in Kenya during the holiday season.



Kenyan police arrested the suspect, who has not been named, in the coastal city of Mombasa, after chemicals and materials used for making explosives were allegedly seized from his house.



Foreign Office sources told The Daily Telegraph that a Briton was "involved" with a group of individuals found with bomb-making equipment in Mombasa.



A spokesman said: "British counter-terrorism officials have offered assistance to the Kenyans in this case and a team from the Metropolitan Police is deploying to Kenya to assist in the investigation."



In recent months, detectives from Scotland Yard have turned up in Kenya to assist a new investigation into the 1988 murder of British tourist Julie Ward.



It is to help unravel the case where Somali pirates killed tourist David Tebbutt and kidnapped his wife Judith during an attack on a Kenyan coastal resort in September this year.
