JKIA blast suspects charged in court

03 February 2014, 16:44 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Four persons were arraigned in court Monday for allegedly planning and taking part in a terrorist attack at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in Nairobi.

The accused, Mohammed Osman, Garad Hussain, Abdi Mohammed and Ali Warsame are accused of planting an explosive device at a Java Coffee Cafe within the airport on January 16, 2014.

Police reports linked the four to the Al-Shabaab terrorist group that has been carrying out terrorist activities within the country and which took responsibility for the Westgate mall attack.

The police said in their presentation to the court that the four, together with five others that were not present planned and executed the attack on the night of the aforementioned date.

They further allege that the four suspects led them to a hide-out in Nairobi's Eastlands region where they found unused military equipment including explosive devices such as grenades and home made bombs.

Police are hoping to have the suspects denied bail with a view to a full hearing in two weeks time.

The explosion at the airport did not cause any casualties or injuries.

Inspector General of police David Kimaiyo had earlier said that the explosion had been caused by a fallen light bulb but the reports were later rubbished after it emerged that there had indeed been an explosion.
