The 1998 United States embassy bombings were the attacks that took place on August 7, 1998, in which than 200 people were killed by simultaneous truck bomb explosions at the United States Embassy in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, and Nairobi, Kenya.Abu Mohammad al-Misri along with Fazul Abdul Mohammad masterminded these attacks.

According to the data by FBI In the aftermath of the attacks, over 900 FBI agents alone—and many more FBI employees—travelled overseas to assist in the recovery of evidence and the identification of victims at the bomb sites and to track down the perpetrators. These attacks were soon directly linked to al Qaeda. To date, more than 20 people have been charged in connection with the bombings. Several of these individuals—including Usama bin Laden—have been killed. Six are serving life sentences in U.S. prison, and a few others are awaiting trial.

Some reports say that Al-Masri was living undercover as a Lebanese professor with his daughter.Therefore the Lebanese media said the ones who were killed in the operation were a history professor and his daughter.

The killing of Al-Masri was not in much light as the media was continuously reporting about the Beirut explosion which took place few days before his killing.
