Twelve years after direct flights from Israel to Nairobi stopped because of terrorist attacks against the Israeli-owned Paradise hotel and missiles fired at an Arkia airliner in Mombasa, Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman and his Kenyan counterpart announced Thursday the resumption of direct flights between the two countries..

Liberman said that in addition to strengthening  tourism between the two states, the flights -- five a week that will begin in October  -- will serve as a transit point to and from other countries in Africa as well.
