USS Cole Arrest Campaign Continues [Archives:2001/14/Front Page]

April 2 2001

Within the last two days, Yemeni security forces launched an intensive arrest campaign in the city and Aden as it arrested 12 suspects thought to be involved in the USSCole bombing of October 2000. This comes a few days after Yemeni inspectors flew to the USA to cooperate with th FBI in this aspect.
Reliable sources told Yemen Times that the arrests and intensifying US-Yemeni cooperation in preliminary investigations indicate that the trial will not start any time soon. Observers say this resulted from the US pressure on the government to further postpone the trial until sufficient evidence is gathered.
