Court officials said Libi would be presented before Judge Kaplan at 12:45 (1645 GMT) and arraigned over the embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania. The car bombing of the US embassy in Nairobi killed 213 people and wounded another 5,000 on August 7, 1998. A near simultaneous truck bomb outside the US mission in Tanzania killed 11 people and wounded 70 more. Libi, a computer expert, was on the FBI’s most wanted list with a $5 million price on his head for his presumed role in helping to scope out targets in Kenya. The married father-of-four is accused of conspiracy to murder, kidnap and maim Americans and of plotting to maliciously damage and destroy US property. The 49-year-old initially was held and interrogated on the USS San Antonio, an amphibious American transport ship in the Mediterranean. But US television network CBS reported that his questioning was cut short and he was brought to New York after he started to refuse food and water. CBS says Libi, whose given name is Nazih Abdul Hamed al-Raghie, suffers from hepatitis. The New York indictment of him and 20 other presumed Al-Qaeda lieutenants in 2000 lists him in direct connection to the US embassy bombing in Kenya. It accuses Libi in 1993 of discussing possible attacks against the US embassy in Nairobi, and of surveilling the diplomatic mission. In or around 1994, it says, he received files concerning possible terrorist attacks against the embassy, the US Agency for International Development, and British, French and Israeli targets in Nairobi.
