PM prepared for Kenya siege news

David Cameron warned the UK to be ready for "more bad news" after the deaths of three British nationals in the Nairobi terror attack.
The Kenyan Defence Forces said "most of the hostages" at the Westgate mall had now been rescued and the majority of the building had been secured after a major military operation.
The UK has offered Kenya assistance, including intelligence co-operation, in response to the attack by Islamic extremists in the upmarket shopping centre which has left scores dead and many more injured.
Somali-based militant group al-Shabaab claimed responsibility for the atrocity, which Mr Cameron described as an "absolutely sickening and despicable act of appalling brutality".
The Kenya Defence Forces said on Twitter: "Most of the hostages have been rescued and security forces have taken control of most parts of the building ... all efforts are underway to bring this matter to a speedy conclusion."
Four personnel were injured in the operation to retake the mall and were taken to hospital for treatment.
Earlier, the Prime Minister said he had offered the Kenyan authorities "every assistance" in a call to president Uhuru Kenyatta, who lost members of his own family in the attack. He was at pains to stress that the perpetrators did not represent the majority of Muslims but had carried out the atrocity "in the name of terror, violence and extremism".
Mr Cameron said: "These appalling terrorist attacks that take place, where the perpetrators claim they do it in the name of a religion, they don't. They do it in the name of terror, violence and extremism and their warped view of the world. They don't represent Islam or Muslims in Britain or anywhere else in the world."
A 24-year-old man from London was named as one of the gunmen by a Twitter account purporting to be an al-Shabaab spokesman. The @hsm_press2 account listed a string of names it claimed were involved in the attack before being closed down, as previous usernames linked to the terrorist group had been.
Reports that a woman was one of the attackers fuelled speculation that a British terror suspect nicknamed the "White Widow" could have been linked to the plot. Samantha Lewthwaite, who was married to July 7 bomber Jermaine Lindsay, was named on a Kenyan police wanted list last year over links to a suspected terrorist cell planning bomb attacks.
