Kenyan court sentences 2 Iranians to life in jail

NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) — A Kenyan court on Monday sentenced two Iranian nationals convicted of plotting attacks against Western targets to life in prison.

Ahmad Abolfathi Mohammad and Sayed Mansour Mousavi were arrested in June 2012 and led officials to a 15-kilogram (33-pound) stash of the explosive RDX. Officials in Kenya say the two suspects may have been planning attacks on Israeli, American, British or Saudi Arabian interests in Kenya.
