2 Iranians charged in Kenyan court with terrorism

NAIROBI -- A Kenyan prosecutor has charged two Iranian men with collecting information to facilitate a terrorist act after they were allegedly found with video footage of the Israeli embassy.


State Prosecutor Duncan Ondimu said in court Thursday that Sayed Nasrollah Ebrahim and Abdolhosein Gholi Safaee were arrested Tuesday
in an Iranian diplomatic car on Bishops Road, Nairobi, after they had come from visiting Kamiti Prison where they saw two other Iranians who have been jailed for 15 years on terrorism charges.


Ondimu says the suspects were taking the pictures using a mobile phone including when they were intercepted. A Kenyan driver, Moses Keyah Mmboga who was chauffeuring the vehicle belonging to the Iranian embassy has been charged with the suspects and also faces a separate charge of "abetting terrorism."
