Somalia's prime minister said Sunday that the suspects in the 1998 bombings of two US embassies in east Africa are sheltering in the stronghold of his country's militant Islamic movement.
"We are hunting those known to be responsible for the terrorist bombings in Kenya and Tanzania in 1998," Prime Minister Ali Mohamed Gedi told the Associated Press.
The three men are al-Qaida suspects all under US indictment for the 1998 bombings of embassies in Kenya and Tanzania that killed hundreds of people.
"We know they are in Kismayo," Gedi said. "We would like to capture or kill these guys at any cost. They are the root of the problem."
