Iranians Planned Attack on U.S. Targets in Kenya

Kenyan security forces arrested two Iranian nationals who, they say, may have planned to attack U.S. or Israeli targets in the country.

Security forces found 33 pounds of a powerful explosive after they arrested the Iranians in June, according to the Associated Press. The explosives were in Mombasa, a coastal city. The AP reported that several hotels on the coast are owned by Israelis.

“There are no limits to Iranian terrorism,” said a statement from the office of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. “The international community needs to fight the greatest exporter of terrorism in the world.”
