Kenyans in court over attacks on jet and hotel

Four Kenyans were charged with 13 counts of murder yesterday in last November’s twin terrorist attacks on Israeli tourists at the Indian Ocean coast. The men, an Islamic preacher, a teacher and a father and son, stood impassively as prosecutors listed the victims of the bombing of the beachfront Paradise Hotel. At least 10 Kenyans, three Israelis and three suicide bombers died in the strike, believed to be the work of al-Qa’ida. A near-simultaneous missile attack on a departing Israeli passenger jet failed. The suspects, who did not enter a plea due to prosecution delays, were named as Kubwa Muhammed Seif, a town councillor, his son Muhammed Kubwa, Aboud Rogo Mohammed and Said Saggar Ahmed. Three of them had been arrested months ago for harbouring an illegal alien, believed to be Fazul Abdullah Mohammed, an al-Qa’ida fugitive wanted for the November attacks and the 1998 US embassy bombing in Nairobi.
