>> Jamal al-Badawi, a militant, believed to be one of the men behind the deadly bombing of the USS Cole in 2000, was killed by a US air strike in Yemen. The United States military confirmed his death on Sunday, after he was was targeted in a precision strike on New Year's Day.
President Donald Trump tweeting Sunday, our great military has delivered justice for the heroes lost and wounded in the cowardly attack on the USS Cole. 17 sailors were killed and dozens more wounded on October 12th, 2000 when two men in a small boat detonated explosives along side the Navy destroyer as it was refueling.
Badawi was indicted by a US grand jury in 2003. He escaped from jail in Yemen twice and secretly made a deal with authorities there for his freedom. He remained on the FBI's most wanted list and there was a $5 million reward for information leading to his capture.
