JKIA blast suspects deny charges, bail hearing next week

04 February 2014, 17:33

Nairobi -  Four men, including a man identified as a Somali diplomat, have been charged at the High court with terrorism-related offenses for the detonation of an improvised explosive device at a restaurant in the airport.

The four denied involvement Tuesday in the Jan. 16 attack, which blew up a trash can and part of the ceiling of the Java House restaurant near the entrance of an international departure terminal at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport.

No one was injured.

Magistrate Doreen Mulekyo set a bail hearing for next week.

No one claimed responsibility for the attack but one suspect reportedly belongs to the al-Shabab, an al-Qaeda-linked Somali militant group that has vowed to carry out attacks in Kenya s payback for sending its troops to Somalia to fight the militants.
