A British man accused of plotting terror attacks on the Kenyan coast has been jailed for nine years in Mombasa.

According to BBC News, Jermaine Grant, from London, was jailed for nine charges related to trying to illegally obtain Kenyan citizenship.

He faces separate charges of “conspiring to improvise an explosive device” and a trial in Mombasa is ongoing.

Grant, who denies the terror charges, was arrested in 2011 when batteries and chemicals were discovered in his apartment in Mombasa.

UK police – who have provided forensic assistance to Kenyan authorities – allege they were “precursors for making highly volatile explosive substances”.
