British jihadist Thomas Evans who left the UK to join the terror group al Shabaab is believed to have been killed

A British jihadist who left the UK to join the terror group al Shabaab is believed to have been killed in an attack on a Kenyan army base.
The British embassy in Nairobi said it is "seeking to confirm reports" Thomas Evans died on Sunday when militants from al Qaeda's Somalia affiliate attacked the base in Baure, close to the border with Somalia.
Two Kenyan soldiers were killed and at least 15 Shabaab fighters, including two "Caucasians", according to Kenyan defence officials.
Kenya Defence Forces spokesman Colonel David Obonyo said: "All the available data, including photographs, points to it being Thomas Evans.
"There is an investigation going on with forensics and DNA to confirm his identity."
