Sayed Nasrollah Ebrahim, Abdolhosein Gholi Safaee, and driver Moses Keyah Mmboga were arrested in an Iranian diplomatic car after taking video clips of the Israeli Embassy on a cell phone "for the use in the commission of a terrorist act," Reuters reported. The three were detained in Nairobi on Tuesday. They had been visiting Kamiti Prison to meet with two other Iranians, members of Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps Quds Force, who have spent 15 years imprisoned on terrorism charges, the Times of Israel reported.
