Four charged with Kenya hotel blast

Four Kenyans have been charged with murder over the bombing of an Israeli-owned hotel near Mombasa last November which killed at least 16 people. They were brought before Chief Magistrate Aggrey Mchelule on Monday in the Kenyan capital, Nairobi, but were not asked to enter a plea. Defence lawyer Maobe Mao told BBC News Online that since it is a murder case it will be tried in the High Court. The four were remanded in custody and will appear before court again on 8 August. The US believes Osama Bin Laden’s al-Qaeda network was behind the blast which killed 10 Kenyans and three Israelis, as well as three suicide bombers. It happened at almost exactly the same time as missiles were launched at an Israeli commercial flight taking off from the nearby port city of Mombasa, narrowly missing their target. Full Story
