On the Anniversary of the Bombings of the U.S. Embassies in Kenya and Tanzania: On August 7, 1998, two U.S. embassies in Africa suffered coordinated and nearly simultaneous bombings later linked to the terrorist organization Al-Qaeda. The attacks killed more than 250 people, including five local guards and Marine Security Guard Sgt. Jesse Aliganga, and injured more than 5,000 others at the U.S. Embassy in Nairobi, Kenya and the U.S. Embassy in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.

In a statement today, the U.S. Secretary of State said:

“We will never forget the legacy of those who perished, nor the courage, bravery, and valor of all who survived.”

Today, we honor the memory of lost colleagues, family members, and friends, and we remind ourselves that the depravity of terrorists must never overshadow the bravery and heroism of those on the ground that day.
