Ex-ambassador son killed in Kenyan attacks

THE only son of the former Kenyan ambassador to Ireland was among the people killed by terrorists in a Nairobi shopping mall at the weekend.

Mbugua Mwangi, the son of Catherine Muigai Mwangi who recently returned home after a six-year posting here, was killed with fiancee, Rosemary Wahito on Saturday morning.

A large explosion rocked the Kenyan mall where Islamic extremists are holding hostages a day after attacking the shopping centre and killing 68 people.

Some 10 to 15 militants are in the mall holding an unknown number of captives.
