It was but a month ago that 11 suspects were charged with bombing the USS Cole, but the trial was adjourned for a month for further investigations. Today the Yemeni security court charged six Yemenis in the planning of the October, 2000 bombing and they are said to belong to Osama Bin Laden's terrorist network.
Seventeen American sailors were killed when two suicide bombers in an explosives-laden boat rammed the USS Cole as it refueled in the southern port city of Aden. The bombing was blamed on bin Laden's al-Qaida terror network.

Among the six charged in San'a Wednesday was accused mastermind Abdel Rahim al-Nasheri, said to be in U.S. custody. The other five were in court Wednesday.
