Two men brought to the United States to be prosecuted in the deadly bombings of U.S. embassies in Africa were indicted Monday on charges that they conspired to carry out the attacks.

The Aug. 7 bombings killed 258 people, including 12 Americans, and injured more than 5,000 others.A necessary and predictable legal step prior to trial, the indictment returned Monday carried added significance because it was the first indictment to be made public in what has become a rapidly expanding case worldwide.

Mohamed Sadeek Odeh, 33, and Mohamed Rashed Daoud Al-'Owhali, whose age was not available, were charged in the indictment returned in U.S. District Court in Manhattan with conspiring to bomb the embassies in Nairobi, Kenya, and Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania.
