Kenya mall attack: Sixth Briton confirmed dead after Nairobi Westgate shopping centre massacre
Foreign Office 'cannot rule out the potential for further British casualties'
The British death toll for the Nairobi mall attack has risen to six, after another UK national was confirmed dead.
The person's identity has not been revealed, and the Foreign Office said there may be more British deaths.
Some 67 people died in the terrorist attack on the Westgate shopping centre in the Kenyan capital a week ago, and dozens are still reported missing.
Somalia’s radical al-Shabaab movement claimed responsibility for the attack, in which gunmen stormed the upmarket shopping centre, shooting at everyone in sight.
A Foreign Office spokesperson said: "FCO can confirm a sixth British national has been identified amongst those killed in the tragedy in Nairobi. We are providing consular assistance.
"We have no information at this time that any further British nationals have been killed although we cannot rule out the potential for further British casualties and we continue to stay in close contact with the Kenyan authorities as their investigations continue."
