US Cole Victims Memorial

I wish to express my profound sympathy to the families and friends of the men and women killed and injured aboard USS Cole. For a Spiritual Memorial Click Here.

SEVENTEEN people died and 39 were injured in an attack on the American guided missile destroyer, USS Cole, in Aden harbour, Yemen, on October 12, 2000.

While the ship was refuelling offshore, a small craft with two men on board - presumed to be suicide bombers - approached the ship and exploded. The small boat is believed to have been packed with 400-700 pounds of explosives, and the blast blew a 40-foot hole in the side of the USS Cole.

In the months since the bombing, there has been growing evidence that it was orchestrated by Usama bin Laden's al-Qa'ida network.
