Police Recapture One of Cole Bombing Suspects

September 26, 2003|From Times Wire Reports

Yemeni police have arrested one of 10 escaped Al Qaeda suspects being held in connection with the terrorist bombing of the U.S. warship Cole, an officer said.

The officer said the man was taken into custody Tuesday in Aden, the port city where he had been detained in connection with the October 2000 suicide bombing, which killed 17 sailors.

The April 11 breakout from a heavily guarded prison in Aden caused deep embarrassment for the Yemeni government, which supports the U.S. campaign against terrorism.
