US Navy ships fired between 75 and 100 Tomahawk cruise missiles at a terrorist training camp in Khost, Afghanistan and a suspected chemical weapons plant in Khartoum, Sudan, on 20 August. The attacks, in response to the bombing of US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, were launched from the Red Sea and Indian Ocean. The plant in Khartoum was reported to be severely damaged, with claims of up to "300 people missing" from Sudanese Government sources. Up to 30 were thought to have died in the attack on Khost. One missile strayed into Pakistan, killing at least six people.
