The death of Osama bin Laden brings a "measure of justice" to the relatives of those killed in a 1998 terrorist attack in Nairobi, U.S. Ambassador Michael Ranneberger said this week at his last reception in the Kenyan capital.
The U.S. ambassador in Kenya announced Tuesday a ban on four top government officials and a businessman from traveling to the United States because of suspected connections to drug smugglers he compared to "infectious rats."
"They attempt to bolster their public image by funding local causes, but these public-relations efforts belie their very base nature," he said. "It's like putting lipstick on an infectious rat."
Mr. Ranneberger said drug lords often spread their money around in local communities to buy the loyalty of villagers.
