DEBKAfile was founded by a team of journalists in June 2000 as an independent Internet Web site, providing an intelligence and security news service. December 1, 2016, 7:00 PM (IDT)
Two Iranian citizens and a Kenyan who took pictures of Israel's embassy in Nairobi with their cellular phones while riding in a vehicle belonging to the Iranian embassy were arrested on Thursday by a counterterror unit of the Kenya Police and brought before a judge for the extension of their arrests. The prosecutor in the case said that memory cards found in the suspects' possession contained many videos of the Israeli embassy and of a maximum security prison where several days earlier the suspects visited two other Iranian citizens serving long sentences for possession of explosives and for planning terrorist attacks in Mombasa and Nairobi.
Our unique angle on these subjects – and strong intelligence dimension – has earned DEBKAfile a global reputation and a steady readership – which skyrockets in times of crisis.
