U.S. Reservations Delay USS Cole Bombing Case

Wednesday, 29 November 2000 12:00 AM

Al-Hayat quoted diplomatic sources in the Yemeni capital, Sanaa, as saying, "The reservations by the U.S. investigators might be one of the indirect reasons for the delay by the Yemeni authorities in referring the case to the prosecution."

The sources said the case was now in the hands of Brig. Ghaleb al-Qamash, head of the Yemeni intelligence, who supervises the investigation and coordination with U.S. investigators.

A well-informed Yemeni source also told the newspaper that the General Prosecution "hasn't received anything related to the bombing of the USS Cole" and was not expecting such a move soon "because our information indicate that the security services were still gathering (evidence) to complete the legal conditions for the indictment."

The source said the General Prosecution would "determine the final number of suspects and the charges after completing the necessary investigation."

Seventeen U.S. sailors were killed in the attack and 37 were wounded.
