Kenya US Embassy bombing 1998
US Embassy bombing: Nairobi, Kenya, 1998. Before this US embassy destruction, carried out by al-Qaeda bombs, the US viewed East Africa as a “low-threat” area. Now the US military -- AFRICOM - has a foothold in Kenya too. US military manuals don't prepare soldiers and their families for stress-related psychological problems in such situations. A new mental-health centre has been opened to help them cope better.
