UK jihadist Thomas Evans was al-Shabab cameraman

A British man killed while fighting with Islamist militant group al-Shabab in Kenya was second in command of his unit at the time, the BBC has learned.

Thomas Evans, 25, from Buckinghamshire, died in the thwarted attack on a military base on 14 June.

Police now say he was also the group’s cameraman, and captured images of the incident up until his death.
