A terrorist bomb aimed at the American Embassy caused devastation, reducing the embassy and a neighbouring five-storey office block to mounds of rubble. Over two hundred people were killed and thousands injured. The blast, and a simultaneous attack on the US Embassy in Tanzania, were blamed on al-Qaeda, and four men linked to the group were convicted for their part in the bombings..All the windows of another building were smashed by the explosion.
