Sus­pect in USS Cole at­tack ‘killed in drone strike’

The Guardian Weekly - - Gobal Report -

Don­ald Trump said the US mil­i­tary has killed Ja­mal al-Badawi, an al-Qaida mil­i­tant wanted in con­nec­tion with the at­tack on the USS Cole.

Seven­teen US sailors died and at least 40 peo­ple were wounded in the Oc­to­ber 2000 at­tack, in which sui­cide bombers al­most sank the guided mis­sile de­stroyer while it lay in Aden har­bour.

Badawi was in­dicted in 2003 and charged with ter­ror­ism of­fences in­clud­ing the mur­der of US na­tion­als and mil­i­tary per­son­nel. He was killed by a US airstrike in Ye­men on 1 Jan­uary.
