of April 2001, fourteen individuals have been charged with
bombing the U.S. Embassies in Kenya and Tanzania.
The U.S. Government is offering a reward for information leading
to the arrest or prosecution of these individuals. Persons
providing information are eligible for a reward of up to $5
million dollars, protection of their identity and possible
relocation for themselves and their family.
On May 29, 2001, the United States Attorney's Office and the
FBI announced the convictions
of four men in connection with the deadly Embassy Bombings.
On October 18, 2001, these four individuals were sentenced
to life in federal prison without the possibility of release.
The investigation continues because several defendants in
this matter remain as fugitives. Additionally, there is a
$25 million reward for information leading to the apprehension
and prosecution of each of these fugitives.
