A Kenyan court acquitted four men in the bombing of an Israeli-owned hotel. The High Court in Nairobi ruled Thursday that there is insufficient evidence to link the defendants, all Muslims, to the 2002 suicide attack in Mombasa that killed 12 Israelis and three hotel staffers. Al-Qaida claimed responsibility for the bombing and for a simultaneous botched attempt to shoot down an Israeli airliner taking off from the nearby airport.
