Kenya: Iranians shipped 100kg of explosives

11 July 2012, 08:06

Nairobi - A Kenyan police officer has told a court that two Iranians accused of planning attacks on Western targets in Kenya had shipped more than 100kg of a powerful explosive.

Iranian nationals Ahmad Abolfathi Mohammad and Sayed Mansour Mousavi are charged with preparing to commit acts intended to cause grievous harm after they were arrested and allegedly led officials to a 15kg stash of the explosive RDX.

Police Sergeant Erick Opagal asked the court on Tuesday in an affidavit to deny the two suspects bail because more than 85kg of the explosive authorities say was shipped to Kenya has not been found.

Iranian agents are suspected in several successful or thwarted attacks — especially against Israeli interests — around the globe over the last year.
