Saudi Arabia hands over to Yemen French tanker explosion suspects
Saudi Arabia has handed over four Yemenis to Sanaa, including two suspected of involvement in last October's deadly attack on a French supertanker off Yemen's southeastern coast, an interior ministry official said Monday.
"Four Yemenis detained in the Saudi kingdom were handed over to Yemeni authorities on Sunday," the official told AFP, on condition of anonymity.
"Two of them are accused of involvement in the attack on the Limburg," he said.
An explosion ripped through the French supertanker as it prepared to enter Ash-Shir port on Yemen's southeastern coast to load a cargo of crude, killing one Bulgarian crew member and wounding 12 others. (Albawaba.com)
