Fifteenth Anniversary of East Africa Embassy Bombings

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

On the fifteenth anniversary of the U.S. Embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania, our thoughts and prayers are with the survivors and innocent victims of these cowardly attacks.

We honor the memory of the over 200 people who lost their lives, and we remember the nearly 5,000 who were injured.

The victims included American, Kenyan, and Tanzanian employees of our embassies.

Our continued presence in the region and our enduring friendship with the people of Kenya and Tanzania remind us that, despite the devastation and loss of life, the terrorists failed.

We are committed to bringing them all to justice.

Tragedies like these also remind us why embassy security and the safety of our personnel and visitors remain a priority for the U.S. Department of State.

Working closely with our African partners, we will continue to combat terrorism while we keep our doors open to all those of good will.
