On Friday 7 August 1998, two men in a delivery truck set off from a suburb of the Kenyan capital, Nairobi.
It carried more than 700 kilograms of explosives.
Forty-five minutes later, the truck pulled up at the rear entrance of the United States Embassy - and detonated.
Over 200 people were killed, thousands more were injured.
This was Osama Bin Laden's first major strike in his promised jihad.

I'll post the same reply as I did in another similar, off topic thread:
I don't know why you're posting about Bin Laden in the 9/11 forums.
According to the FBI, he's not wanted for the 9/11 attacks.
Maybe you should post this in the Terrorism forum instead.
