NPR's Tom Gjelten reports that a prime suspect in the bombing of the US embassy in Nairobi was flown to the United States from Kenya and arraigned in New York. An FBI complaint filed to support the indictment of Yemeni national Khalid Salim said he was trained for the bombing attack in a terrorist camp in Afghanistan, flown to Kenya, and accompanied the driver of the booby-trapped truck when it was driven to the US embassy. US officials say a second suspect is also in the process of being brought to New York. The Kenyan government says he has already departed.
