USS Cole bombers sentenced to death


Suspected ringleader Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, who is currently in US custody, and Jamal Mohammed al-Badawi, were both given the death penalty.

Four others were given between five and 10 years in jail for the attack, blamed on Osama Bin Laden’s al-Qaeda network.

In October 2000, two attackers rammed the destroyer with a small boat laden with explosives in the port of Aden.
