Not that Mombassa, whose best-known works are probably the scatological and iconoclastic Mambo images from which the duo's band name could be linked, wants to make too much of it all.

 Unanswered questions regarding Kenya terror attacks
The Mombassa bombing coincided with a gun attack on a Likud party office in Beit She’an, Israel the same day where primary elections were being held to select a new leader for the party.
Israeli officials linked the Mombassa attacks to Al Qaeda because the simultaneous incidents at the airport and the hotel required a good deal of planning and because tourists were the targets, as in the Bali bombing, which has also been blamed on Al Qaeda.
It may be entirely coincidence that the Mombassa bombing gave Sharon an opportunity to link Palestinian attacks on Israelis with Al Qaeda, and to swing the Likud election in his favour, but one cannot dismiss the possibility of Mossad—Israel’s secret service—being involved in the Kenyan attacks.

 afrol News - Mombassa terrorist attack "possible because of high concentration of small arms"
With the attacks in Mombassa, the deployment of small arms and light weapons had "changed its character," the Germany-based centre says.
While guerrilla troops had attacked airplanes with surface-to-air missiles in the 1990s during the civil wars in Angola and in Congo Kinshasa; the attack on Mombassa, however, was "distinctive" because it had "happened at a time of peace and because its targets were innocent tourists," BICC concludes.
Mr Croll says that the Mombassa attack was "an escalation" of the situation, "for which, however, the breeding ground already existed." This breeding ground was to be found more in the northern neighbour states of relatively stable and liberal Kenya than in the country itself.
