The Kenyan prosecutor Duncan Ondimu has charged 2 Iranian men with terrorism after they were found compiling information to be used to carry out a terrorist attack. The two men were allegedly found with video footage of the Israeli embassy.

The prosecutor said in court on Thursday that Sayed Nasrollah Ebrahim and Abdolhosein Gholi Safaee were arrested on Tuesday in an Iranian diplomatic car while taking the pictures of the Israeli mission using a smartphone, including when they were cut off by the authorities.

Kenyan anti-terror officials said the 2 Iranian men are members of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps Quds Force, an elite and secretive unit.

Ahmad Abolfathi Mohammad and Sayed Mansour Mousavi were also arrested in June 2012 and led officials to a 15-kilogram (33-pound) stash of the explosive RDX. At least 85 kilograms (187 pounds) of the explosives that authorities say was shipped into Kenya has not yet been found.

A Kenyan who was driving the vehicle belonging to the Iranian embassy has also been charged along with the suspects and faces a separate charge of “abetting terrorism,” Ondimu said.

Iranian agents have been reported across the globe to target Israeli citizens in countries like India, Thailand, Azerbaijan and now Kenya. In 2013, the court convicted two Iranian nationals of being Quds agents planning attacks against Western targets in the country and they were sentenced to life in prison, but it was later reduced to 15 years imprisonment after an appeal was filed.

To add on that, two Kenyans admitted assisting Iranian state intelligence to plot attacks on western targets in 2015, according to the police chief. Abubakar Sadiq Louw, 69, and Yassin Sambai Juma, 25, confessed to being spies for the Quds Force, according to Joseph Boinnet.

He said the two had been given money by their handlers to case their targets for future terror attacks and to recruit others, including children. He declined to say which western targets were being surveyed.
