Kenya Charges Fifth Man in Terror Case
A Kenyan court on Tuesday charged a fifth man in a terrorist attack in Mombasa that killed at least 10 Kenyans and three Israeli tourists in November.
Salmin Mohammed Khamis, 27, was charged with murder for the Nov. 28 attack on a hotel on Kenya’s Indian Ocean coast. Four other Kenyan men were charged on June 24. Khamis looked nervous as the court’s clerk read out the charges and the names of 12 Kenyans and three Israelis killed in the attack. Three of the four suspects are tied to a man suspected of being Fazul Abdullah Mohammed, an alleged al-Qaida operative and leading suspect in the November attack as well as the 1998 bombing of the U.S. Embassy in Nairobi.
