A home on the outskirts of Nairobi believed to have been rented by a suspect in the U.S. Embassy bombing was searched again by FBI agents, the home's new tenants said.

An American couple said FBI agents who had searched the house shortly after the Aug. 7 bombing that killed 248 people returned Thursday, but were allowed to check only the yard and the exterior of the home.

The FBI office in Nairobi was not staffed Saturday and phone calls were not answered.

The New York Times reported Saturday that other residents in the development identified the previous tenant as Haroun Fazil, one of four suspects charged with the murder of the 12 Americans who died in the blast.

Fazil, a native of the Comoros Islands off East Africa rented the house from May to August and later was joined by co-conspirator Mohamed Rashed Daoud Al-'Owhali, according to a complaint filed Sept. 17 by the U.S. attorney's office in New York.
