How many people died in the 1998 embassy bombings?

On August 7, 1998, explosives exploded near the American embassies in Nairobi, Kenya, and Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. Two hundred and twenty-four individuals were killed in the explosions, including 12 Americans, and over 4,500 were injured. The attacks are considered acts of terrorism.

The American government initially suspected that al-Qaeda was responsible for the bombings, but evidence subsequently proved this not to be the case. Al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri claimed responsibility for the attacks on television, but this has been denied by other members of the group.

There have been claims that the number of deaths in the bombings is higher than stated officially. In April 1999, the Kenyan government alleged that between 300 and 500 people may have died in the bombing of its embassy. In July 2000, a British newspaper reported that it had found documents indicating that between 600 and 700 people may have died. No independent corroboration of these figures has been offered by subsequent reports.

In addition to the Americans, there were also twelve Kenyans killed in the bombing of their embassy and an equal number of Tanzanians.

Where did the 1998 US embassy bombing take place?

An example of such an assault is the 1998 US Embassy bombings. The incident occurred on August 7, 1998, in the early morning hours, about 3.30 a.m. East African time. Pervert bombers in explosive-laden vehicles were stationed at the US embassy buildings in Nairobi (Kenya) and Dar es Salaam (Tanzania). They killed 213 people and injured over 5,000 more.

The bombs destroyed part of the US embassy building in Nairobi and damaged another part of the building in Dar es Salaam. They also caused heavy damage to other buildings in both cities. The attacks are believed to have been carried out by al-Qaeda terrorists in response to the detention of several of their members by the United States.

Eight Americans were among the victims of the attack, including two who were identified only by their age: Tom Tucker, 31, and Nicole Schneider, 20. There were five other American citizens whose identities must be protected for privacy reasons. They included Daniel William Wiley, an information management specialist for the State Department; Jerry Wayne Miller, Jr., a security officer with the Department of State; Malcolm Karl Klockner, a technical assistant at the US embassy in Dar es Salaam; and Vincent Thomas Feczko, who worked at the US embassy in Budapest (Hungary).

Another victim was an Italian citizen named Giuseppe Zappata who worked at the US embassy in Rome (Italy). He was visiting Kenya at the time of the attack.

How many people died in the Bali bombings?

The bombs on the renowned tourist island of Bali on October 12, 2002, killed people from 21 different countries. The two explosives smashed through the Kuta tourist district's Paddy's Irish Bar and the neighboring Sari Club. They also destroyed or damaged more than 150 other buildings. The death toll included 202 people, with another 100 people injured.

The bombers' aim was to kill as many Western tourists as possible. However, because most of the victims were not rich foreigners, but rather Indonesian locals who rarely visit hotels, the attack failed to shut down Bali as a destination. Instead, it only served to draw even more visitors there who might be tempted by cheaper alternatives.

Bali has been the target of terrorist attacks before. In 1995, a bomb blast at a hotel in Jakarta killed 19 people and wounded 182. The bombing was carried out by members of the militant group Jemaah Islamiyah (JI). In 2001, terrorists attacked three churches on Java Island killing 9 people and wounding 30. Also in 2001, militants bombed a restaurant in Bangkok that was popular with Western tourists; it was known as a favorite spot for Australian tourists. Eight people were killed in that attack.

There have been no further major terrorist incidents on Bali since 2002.

How many foreigners died on 26/11?

On July 11, 2006, seven bombs detonated within 11 minutes on Mumbai's Suburban Railway, killing 209 people, including 22 foreigners, and wounding over 700 others. The bombings were the worst attack on foreign civilians in India until 2009 when Pakistani militants killed 142 people in attacks on two churches in Delhi and one school.

The Foreign Office says the number of deaths caused by the bomb blasts on July 11, 2006, is now known to be 22. This includes citizens of countries other than India (terrorists belonging to the Lashkar-e-Taiba group responsible for the attack).

In addition, the police have confirmed that three children, all born in India but foreign students at the time, have been killed in the attacks. Their nationalities are unknown but they were studying in Mumbai at the time of the bombing.

Also, six persons have been reported dead after a boat carrying tourists sank near Mumbai. The boat was heading for the popular tourist destination of Goa when it hit rocks off the coast of Maharashtra state early this morning. Reports say the boat was full of German tourists.

Finally, there were 80 victims listed only by their initials in the list published by the Indian government. They include 52 men, 23 women and 5 children. The victims came from 20 different countries around the world.

How many Australians were killed in the Bali bombing?

202 individuals Three bombs exploded in Bali about 11 p.m. on October 12, 2002, two in crowded nightclubs (the Sari Club and Paddy's Bar) and one in front of the American consulate. The blasts killed 202 people, including 88 Australians, and injured hundreds more. Among the injured were six members of a single family who were on their way home from a holiday in Indonesia when they were hit by a taxi carrying their son and daughter-in-law.

In addition to the 88 Australian deaths, another 16 Australians were reported missing in connection with the bombings. They include 12 men and three women, some of whom may have been taken hostage. They were among 2,058 people detained by Indonesian authorities after the attacks but most were later released without being charged with a crime.

Of the 202 victims, 56 were children Under 18. The youngest victim was 8 years old and the oldest 67 years old.

The majority of the victims (96%) were Indonesian. Of the Australian victims, 88 were from seven countries including Indonesia (62), Britain (15), India (4), Australia itself (3), Turkey (1), and Israel (1). The remaining 14 Australians were believed to be from at least nine other countries.

How many people were killed by nuclear bombs in Egypt?

Estimates of casualties vary, but one conservative figure is that the mustard and phosgene-filled aircraft bombs killed and injured roughly 1,500 people. Egypt has not undertaken a committed nuclear weapons development since the 1952 Egyptian Revolution. However, it is believed that before then they may have had an agreement with Israel to enrich uranium together.

These estimates are based on reports from doctors who treated the wounded. Mustard gas can cause blistering of the skin and lungs, while phosgene gas can cause severe lung problems.

There are several factors that make estimating the number of casualties from a single bomb event difficult. For example, there is no way to know how many more casualties would have occurred if these bombs had been dropped during peacetime rather than during wartime. Also, because most victims of nuclear explosions will be exposed to both gases, it is hard to say which gas was responsible for what proportion of deaths.

The first atomic bomb was tested by the United States in 1945. Although this bomb was not designed to kill, but to demonstrate its power, it still caused death and injury. The estimate of casualties for the American test site is between 80,000 and 100,000 people, most of them civilians. There are also estimates for Soviet tests in the 1950s and 1960s of between 5,000 and 10,000 people dead or missing.
