Bomb Blast: It’s 19 years since Al-Qaeda unleashed terror in Nairobi

Amid the election fever,  Kenya’s online community on Monday remembered victims of the 1998 US embassy bomb blast carried out by Osama Bin Laden’s terror group Al-Qaeda.

Some 213 people were killed in the Nairobi bombing -and 11 in the almost simultaneous blast in Dar es Salaam- which heavily damaged the embassy’s building and incinerated two passing passenger buses.

Scores of people were unaccounted for and more than 1,100 injured in the attack.

Netizens paid tribute to those who lost their lives in the blast and also gave messages of encouragement to family and friends of the victims.

This is what they had to say.
