Investigations Into U.S. Ship Blast Focus on 4 Suspects

Wednesday, 01 November 2000 12:00 AM

This new information was revealed as President Bill Clinton was talking about difficulties in Yemen's cooperation at this stage of the investigations, which he said was due to Yemen's fear of the growing presence of U.S. investigators in the country. After praising Yemen's cooperation during the past stage, President Clinton said he argued with Yemeni President Ali Abdallah Salih during a telephone call a few days ago about allowing U.S. investigators to question the eyewitnesses directly.

The Yemeni side is insisting that it should be the main party conducting the investigations and does not want the Americans to have a visible major role similar to their role after the bombing of the U.S. embassies in Nairobi and Dar es Salaam in 1998.

A Yemeni source said the investigations have established that two persons arrested in Lahij were involved in placing explosives in Aden's two most important hotels in 1993 to protest U.S. intervention in Somalia. The source added that four identity cards issued in Lahij between 1996 and 1997 have disappeared from the records. A forged identity card from Lahij was discovered in the house rented by the two persons who carried out the suicide operation in Aden.
