Kenya Arrests Al-Qa’ida Suspects

Kenyan security authorities have arrested more than two dozen people with suspected links to two terror attacks attributed to Al-Qa’ida, according to news reports.

The suspects were allegedly involved in the 1998 bombing of the U.S. Embassy in Nairobi and the bombing of a hotel in the beach resort Mombasa, a destination popular with Israeli tourists. Most of the arrestees are not Kenyan nationals, news sources reported.

The two attacks claimed 232 lives combined. The arrests came days after the first anniversary of the resort bombing.
