- A diplomatic row has ensued between Kenya and Iran over two men arrested on Tuesday at the Israeli Embassy

The Iranian government on Friday ordered the Kenyan government to set free two of its nationals arrested by the Anti-Terrorism Police Unit.

It is reported that ATPU is holding them after suspecting that they were planning an attack on the embassy.
The Iranian government has, however, rubbished the terrorism link saying that the two were government lawyers on an official assignment.
“The two men are official lawyers of the justice ministry... who traveled to Nairobi on behalf of the families of two Iranian prisoners in Kenya for a legal follow-up," the Iranian Foreign Ministry through spokesman Bahram Ghasemi stated.
Before they were arrested, Nasrollah and Gholi had visited Kamiti Maximum Prison where two Iranians, Ahmad Mohammed and Sayed Mousavi are serving a 15-year term after being found in possession of explosives.
