An Al Qaeda militant wanted in the 1998 bombings of U.S. embassies in Africa has been killed by Somali forces.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton confirmed Saturday the death of Fazul Abdullah Mohammed, who had been indicted in connection with the bombings in Kenya and Tanzania.

“It is a just end for a terrorist who brought so much death and pain to so many innocents in Nairobi and Dar es Salaam and elsewhere - Tanzanians, Kenyans, Somalis, and our own embassy personnel,” Clinton said.

Agence France-Presse reported that Mohammed and another man were killed after their truck failed to stop at a government checkpoint.
