An FCO spokesperson said:

We can now confirm that on present information five British Nationals have been killed in the recent terror attacks in Nairobi.

One individual previously thought to be British is a Kenyan national. Our thoughts are with his family and with the friends and family of all of those who have died during this difficult time.

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.
