2 IRANIANS ARRESTED IN KENYA OVER TERROR

2 IRANIANS ARRESTED IN KENYA OVER TERROR
 



Kenyan police have arrested two Iranians on suspicion of planning terrorist attacks in concert with al-Shabab in southern Somalia, Kenyan sources said on Friday 06/22/2012. 

One of the suspects led police to a large cache of 15kg chemicals on Friday that officers believe could have been used to make explosives. The material was hidden at a golf club in the port city of Mombasa. Police believe this to be an ammonia-based compound and samples have been sent for tests.

A senior anti-terrorism officer told The Daily Telegraph that the two men "were planning to help al-Shabab carry out revenge attacks in Kenya because of the Kenya Defence Forces' incursion inside Somalia" (Almadow Operation). Security sources said the men were suspected of planning attacks in Mombasa or Nairobi (see also - Nairobi 05.28.12).

Police arrested the Iranians on Wednesday in Nairobi, with an official accusing the men of having links to a "wider network of terrorists", including al-Shabab.

In 2006, the United Nations identified Iran as one of seven countries breaking an arms embargo on Somalia by supplying the Islamist militants who then controlled much of the country's south. A report compiled for the Security Council described three illegal shipments of weapons from Iran, including surface-to-air missiles, machine guns and rocket launchers, although Tehran denied the claims.

Earlier this year, Israel accused Iran of organising attacks on its diplomats in India and Georgia (see - Delhi-Tbilisi Bombings). Tehran denied involvement in the bombings, which injured several people in New Delhi. One day later, an Iranian man was seriously wounded while trying to throw a bomb at police in Thailand's capital Bangkok (see - Bangkok 2012 Investigation).

Experts believe that Iran might seek to retaliate for the assassination of several of its nuclear scientists in Tehran, allegedly by Israel.
 
 
* The two suspects, identified as Ahmad Abolfathi Mohammad (L) and Sayed Mansour Mousavi (R), appeared in court on Monday 06/25/2012. They both denied the charges before Principal Magistrate P. C Biwott at the Milimani Law courts in Nairobi. The Magistrate ordered that they be remanded in police custody until Wednesday when he will rule on their bail application. He remanded them after the Prosecution objected to their release, saying they remained a flight risk.

On Wednesday 06/27/2012, Ahmad Abolfathi Mohammad claimed in court they both were interrogated by Israeli agents and tortured. He said he went without food for long periods and that he was forced to sleep on a cement floor with only his jacket to keep him warm. Police prosecutor Daniel Musangi denied the accusations that the suspects were tortured. Magistrate Paul Biwott said the allegations were serious and ordered an investigation.
 
The two Iranian suspects, Ahmad Abolfathi Mohammad and Sayed Mansour Mousavi, were released on bail on 07/16/2012. Ahmad Mohammad and Sayed Mousavi were convicted, on Friday 05/03/2013, of possessing explosives, which they allegedly planned to use for an attack and sentenced, on 05/06/2013, to life in prison by a Kenyan court.
