Mombasa

Mombasa is the second largest city in Kenya, with a population of 900,000. Until the 16th century, Mombasa was a center of the Arab trade in ivory and slaves. The city was visited by Vasco da Gama on his first voyage to India, and it was burned three times by the Portuguese. Today, Mombasa serves as a chief port for Kenya, Uganda, and northeast Tanzania, and its beaches and resorts attract thousands of tourists annually. What tragic series of events happened here on November 28, 2002? More...

Terror Attacks in Mombasa, Kenya
Press Conference by Foreign Minister Benjamin Netanyahu


JERUSALEM, Nov. 28 2002 — In coordinated assaults on Israelis in the Kenyan city of Mombasa today, terrorists fired shoulder-launched missiles at a crowded Israeli passenger jet, missing their target, minutes before three suicide bombers drove up to the doors of an Israeli-owned hotel and detonated their explosives.

The bombers killed themselves and 12 other people — most of them Kenyans — and wounded dozens more with a blast that, in a chaos of black smoke, screams and burning thatch, gutted the Paradise Hotel and incinerated some bodies beyond recognition.

Israeli and Kenyan officials said that though there were competing claims of responsibility, Al Qaeda was possibly behind the attacks.

Think Suicide bombers! ... on Israelis..... Why? The Americans and their allies blame Al Qaeda for everything! As a rule, it takes two to quarrel! Can anyone come out with the real truth!?
