Iran’s embassy in Nairobi denied any kind of connection with two detained Kenyans accused of spying and plotting attacks in Nairobi. The embassy issued a statement and termed the dissemination of news on the connection of arrested Kenyan people and Iranian intelligence and security bodies an unconstructive move. “Iran always highly regards its relations with African countries, especially Kenya,” announced Iran’s embassy, declaring its full readiness to cooperate with the Kenyan government in fight against terrorism. According to CBS news, Kenya claims it has arrested the two Kenyan nationals connected to an Iranian intelligence network that were planning a “terror attack” in the capital Nairobi and had travelled to Iran last month.
