In 1998 a blast rocked downtown Nairobi. A truck had exploded next to the US Embassy building, reducing it to rubble and killing 212 people some on staff, most bystanders.
On the same day, August 7, the US embassy in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania, was also subject to a similar terrorist attack.
21 people have been charged with the crime, including Osama Bin Laden.
The former embassy site today contains a memorial that can be visited.
