The head of the British Army says he is appalled by allegations that British soldiers may have been involved in the murder of a Kenyan woman.
General Sir Mark Carleton-Smith said he is determined to support the authorities to establish the facts in the murder of Agnes Wanjiru.
The Ministry of Defence has said it is co-operating with a Kenyan inquiry into her death after a Sunday Times report.
The body of Ms Wanjiru, 21, was found in a sceptic tank at a hotel in 2012.
The discovery was made in the town of Nanyuki, about 200 kilometers north of the capital, Nairobi, nearly three months after she had spent an evening partying with soldiers.
General Carleton-Smith, the Chief of the General Staff, has taken the unusual step of publishing the letter he sent to his chain of command on Twitter about his disappointment over the incident. END
