Yemen: Death sentence to Al-Qaeda bombmaking expert
According to AFP, Shawsh confessed to involvement in seven cases of bombing attacks claimed by Al-Qaeda on oil and military facilities in Hadramawt and Marib provinces. "The actions attributed to me are correct," he told an October 9 hearing. "I prepared and carried out these operations voluntarily and without duress."
He has lodged no appeal against the verdict.
Shawsh was caught earlier this year as he prepared to launch a suicide bombing in the Hadramawt port city of Mukalla.
