Embassy Bombings in
Nairobi and Dar es Salaam
We join our diplomatic colleagues, past and present, in their shock at news of the simultaneous bombings of American embassies in Kenya and Tanzania on August 7 and their grief at the injuries and loss of life that resulted.
While American Diplomacy has no independent access to detailed news of that tragedy, it offers its readers the following links to news and information sources that may prove useful, as well as an InfoCenter Discussion Forum where ex-diplomats with East Africa experience may offer their own views and respond to reader inquiries.
