Terror suspect escapes U.S. missile
by UPI

DOBLEY, Somalia - The U.S. Navy, having intercepted communications from a suspected terrorist, fired a missile at a house in Somalia, injuring about 20 people.

Authorities said the Navy had apparently targeted Saleh Ali Saleh Nabhan at a house in the town of Dobley, near the Kenyan-Somalian border. While there were reports that Nabahn had earlier left the house, local officials were checking the wounded to see if Nabhan was among that group.

Security sources said in Mombasa that a communication by Nabhan had been intercepted by the Navy, leading to the attack with a Tomahawk missile.

Nabhan is reputed to be a close ally of another wanted terror suspect, Harun Fazul. Kenyan police say the men were wanted for their alleged involvement in the bombings of the U.S. embassies in Nairobi and Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, on Aug. 7, 1998, attacks in which more than 200 people died and some 5,000 others were injured.

They are also wanted for the November 2002, bombing of the Paradise Hotel in Kikambala and the attempted shooting down of an Arkia Airliner in Mombasa.
