Nairobi -

Bangladesh's High Commissioner to Kenya Wahidur Rahman has been attacked and slightly injured during a robbery at his Nairobi home, police said on Sunday.

Nairobi detective Nicholas Kamwende said two of the diplomat's local guards had been detained for questioning after Saturday night's attack.

“The thugs stormed the residence and took away money and a few electronic items from the house, we are still looking for them,” Kamwende said.

“The workers are being interrogated to establish if they knew anything prior to the attack at the High Commissioner's home,” he added.

Robberies with violence, including so-called house raids and hijackings, are common in the Kenyan capital. - Sapa-AFP
