Footage shows Michael Adebolajo in court in Kenya in 2010

One of the suspects in the Woolwich murder case was arrested in Kenya in 2010, the Foreign Office has confirmed.

It said Michael Adebolajo was arrested there and it gave consular assistance "as normal" in the circumstances.

He was believed to have been preparing to train and fight with Somali militant group al-Shabab, Boniface Mwaniki, head of Kenya's anti-terrorism unit, told the Associated Press.

He said Mr Adebolajo was arrested with five others and later deported.

This footage shows Mr Adebolajo in court in Kenya in 2010 along with a number of other people. He tells the court: "People are mistreating us, we are innocent, believe me."
