DAR ES SALAAM, Tanzania (AP) — U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton has honored the victims of the 1998 U.S. embassy bombings in Africa during a visit to the American compound in Tanzania.

She put flowers on a large rock just inside the main gate of the embassy, said a silent prayer and spoke with three Tanzanian employees who were at the embassy when it was bombed.

The attacks in Tanzania and Kenya killed 224 people. Most of the dead were Kenyans. Twelve Americans died.

Somali officials said Saturday that the mastermind of the attacks, Fazul Abdullah Mohammed, was killed Tuesday.

Clinton told embassy workers that the U.S. has not forgotten its pledge "to seek justice against those who would commit such atrocities." Clinton also cited the recent killing of al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden.
