LONDON - One of the two men arrested on suspicion of the murder of a British soldier hacked to death in a London street was arrested in Kenya in 2010, Britain's Foreign Office said on Sunday.

Michael Adebolajo, 28, was detained by Kenyan police and British officials provided consular assistance.

Confirmation that Adebolajo was arrested in Kenya could increase pressure on Britain's security services to set out what they knew about him and whether they could have done more to prevent Wednesday's killing.

The Kenyan government had denied on Saturday that Adebolajo, born in Britain to Nigerian parents, had ever visited the east African country.
