Justice will be done - Clinton
President Clinton: No hiding place for bombers
US President Bill Clinton has again promised that he will not rest until the embassy bombers in Africa are caught.
Those responsible for Friday's blasts in Kenya and Tanzania, which killed at least 130 people, would be pursued "until justice is done", he said in a live radio broadcast from the White House Oval Office.
He said: "In recent years we have captured major terrorists in the far corners of the world and brought them to America to answer for their crimes.
Mr Clinton decided to broadcast his weekly radio address live - it is usually pre-recorded - in response to the bombings.
"To change any of that - to pull back our diplomats and troops from the world's trouble spots, to turn our backs on those taking risks for peace, to weaken our opposition to terrorism - would give terrorism a victory it must not and will not have."
But privately some believe the Saudi Arabian Osama bin Laden may be responsible for the synchronised bombings.
He has threatened a jihad (holy war) against US troops in his homeland and Americans elsewhere overseas.
Meanwhile the US ambassador to Kenya, Prudence Bushnell, has given her first press conference since she was slightly injured in the Nairobi bombing.
"The result is broken hearts, shattered lives, shock, dismay, anger and incredible sorrow."
She said that 10 American employees and 14 Kenyan-born embassy staff were killed in the blast.
