SANAA, 15 July 2004 — The trial of six Yemenis charged with the October 2000 bombing of the US navy destroyer USS Cole was adjourned by a Yemeni court yesterday until July 21.

The court, chaired by Judge Najeeb Al-Qaderi, adjourned the trial to allow three lawyers standing for the six defendants to meet their clients and review their files.

The trial opened on July 7 with five suspects appearing before the court. The alleged mastermind of the attack, Abdul Raheem Al-Nashri, who is in US custody, is being tried in absentia."
