NAIROBI, (CAJ News) – BRITISH High Commissioner to Kenya, Nic Hailey, has thanked the East African country for  offering support to the United Kingdom following a terror attack in Manchester on Monday night.
At least 22 people were killed and 59 injured.
The full details of what has happened are still emerging, but the incident is being treated by the Greater Manchester Police as a terrorist attack.
“My thoughts and prayers are with all those caught up in the terrible incident last night in Manchester,” Hailey said.
He said Manchester was a place which many Kenyans knew well, describing it as a city which stands, among many other things, for the deep connections between the two countries.
“I am deeply grateful for the public messages of support from President Kenyatta and others,” said Hailey.
He welcomed the determination of Kenya and Kenyans to stand with the United Kingdom to ensure all people could live their lives free of fear.
Kenya is enduring terror attacks by the Islamic Al-Shabaab.
