Nine Arrested in Cole Bombing

The Washington Times World Section [1] today reports some “About bloody time” news:

SAN’A, Yemen — Nine suspects in the 2000 bombing of the destroyer USS Cole have been arrested, the Yemeni government said yesterday, including eight who escaped from jail last year.

Interior Minister Rashad al-Eleimi said authorities were closing in on two suspects still at large since their April jailbreak in the southern port city of Aden. The breakout came as a major embarrassment to the Yemeni government.
