Ramstein Air Base Germany on Oct 13 2000 Cole was bombed in the Yemen port city of Aden view with The Associated Press in Washington His comments coun tered any suggestion weaponry aboard the ship might have been responsible officials say suicide bombers blew up a small boat next to the destroyer ripping a 30 by40foot hole at the water line Western diplomats in Yemen said the explosion seemed to be the work of a wellorganized group with good connections in the port of Aden who might have provided the bombers with logistical support The diplomats insisting on anonymity said the boat used by the bombers was similar to boats used by port authorities to guide vessels into port or help ships with refueling If terrorism is proven the toll would make it the worst such attack on the military
