1,249. 8/12/1998

“…on August 12 [1998], the Nairobi [Kenya] police received a tip that one of the [August 7, 1998, embassy] bombers might be among the injured. The police tracked the information to a local hospital and discovered [Mohamed] al-‘Owhali with back wounds he’d received running away from the explosion. Later that week, under questioning by FBI agents, he too broke down and confessed his role in the bombing and his links to al Qaeda.”
