Principais ataques atribuídos à al-Qaeda

August 7, 2007 - The bombings of the U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania on August 7, 1998 killed more than 220 people and focused international attention on Osama bin Laden and al-Qaeda for the first time. This year, just three days before the anniversary, al-Qaeda has released a video in which American militant Adam Gadahn has warned the United States and its allies that the militant network will target diplomats and embassies in retaliation for U.S.-led actions in Iraq and Afghanistan.
