A Tanzanian gambler has been stoned to death by fellow players at a casino in Kenya’s capital Nairobi after he killed two people, police said.

The man lost his temper when he was refused an advance to try to win back the $300 (£210) he had lost, Nairobi police chief, Japheth Koome, told the BBC.

He left the building but returned with a dagger and stabbed the manager and a security guard, Mr. Koome said. Fellow gamblers then chased and killed the man in a nearby street.

The attack took place at the City View Bar and Restaurant Casino in Nairobi’s Eastleigh district, local media report. Another security officer who was wounded in the attack is in a serious condition in hospital, Kenya’s Daily Nation newspaper reports.

“He was not prepared to lose,” one witness to the attack said.
