Netanyahu Denies Assassination Attempts In Kenya
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has denied reports claiming that two men tried to assassinate him during a tour of Kenya this week.
Kuwaiti newspaper al-Jarida yesterday claimed Kenyan security forces rushed to stop attackers attempting to target the prime minister’s convoy during his five-day state visit to the African continent.
The report said Mr Netanyahu’s security guards were advised to change the route of the convoy, and said police had arrested two suspects shortly after the incident
Mr Netanyahu quickly dismissed the claims during a press conference alongside Ethiopian Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn and said he knew “nothing” of such an incident taking place.
The claims were also denied by Interior ministry spokesman Mwenda Njoka who said there was absolutely nothing of the sort.
