On August 7, 1998, truck bombs exploded almost simultaneously outside the U.S. embassies in Nairobi, Kenya and Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. The attacks killed 224, including 12 Americans, and wounded more than 5000. The terrorist group Al-Qaeda and its leader Osama bin Laden claimed responsibility. American History TV visited the U.S. Diplomacy Center in Washington, D.C., to tour an exhibit marking the 20th anniversary of the bombings. We were joined by the State Department officials in charge of the two embassies at the time. Viewers may find some images in this program disturbing. close
