Secretary Clinton, with the help of survivors, placed a wreath at Memorial Park in Nairobi, Kenya to commemorate victims of the August 7, 1998 Embassy Bombings. Following the ceremony, the Secretary said:

"I appreciate greatly the commitment of the Kenyan government to partner with us and other nations and people around the world against the continuing threat of terrorism which respects no boundaries, no race, ethnicity, religion, but is aimed at disrupting and denying the opportunity for people to make their own decisions and live their own lives."
