Albright to seek funds for bomb victims
Madeleine Albright lays a wreath on the rubble of the Nairobi embassy
The United States Secretary of State, Madeleine Albright, has pledged to seek emergency funding for Kenya following the bomb attack on the American embassy there.
Mrs Albright was speaking in Nairobi where she was paying her respects to the victims of the attack.
She said she would ask Congress for funds to help bomb victims and hospitals, and to boost security and promote democracy.
"I cannot say we acted perfectly," she said.
"But I believe that allegations of callousness are wrong."
Terrorists brought us closer
"Together we promise to bring to justice the murderers of our friends."
Mrs Albright pinned up a poster of the two million dollar reward for the capture of the bombers.
On the poster were printed the words "This is not politics, this is not religion, this is murder".
The embassy bombings in Tanzania and Kenya killed almost 260 people and wounded about 5,000.
On the eve of Mrs Albright's visit, FBI investigators working alongside the Kenyan police confirmed that a suspect in the bomb attacks had been returned to Kenya from Pakistan.
The Pakistani Foreign Ministry said the man was an Arab who had been arrested in Pakistan on August 7 - the day of the bombings.
But the investigators in Nairobi contradicted reports, which came out of Pakistan, that the man had confessed to being connected with the bombings.
