Saudi Arrests Cole Warship Bombing Suspect -Source

Saudi Arabia has arrested a senior militant suspected of involvement in the 2000 bombing of the U.S. warship Cole in neighboring Yemen, a security source said Saturday. He said the suspect, who he did not name, was one of 12 militants arrested late Friday when security forces killed local al Qaeda leader Abdulaziz al-Muqrin. “This man is considered one of the main number twos to Muqrin,” the source told Reuters. “He was a senior operator in this cell and he was involved in the bombing of the Cole.” Yemen is the ancestral home of Saudi-born Osama bin Laden, whose militant al Qaeda group carried out the September 11, 2001, attacks on the United States that killed about 3,000 people and a recent wave of bombings and shootings in Saudi Arabia.
