NAIROBI - A Kenyan court sentenced two Iranian men to life in prison on Monday after they were found guilty of possessing 15 kg (33 pounds) of explosives and planning to carry out bombings in Kenyan cities last year.

Ahmad Mohammed and Sayed Mousavi were found guilty last week by the court. They were arrested in Nairobi in June. Kenyan investigators said at the time of their arrest that it was unclear whether the pair had ties to al-Qaida-linked militants in Somalia or were part of another network.
