Yemani AK47's traced to Saudi attack

To anyone who has been following developments in Yemen, this is hardly shocking news. But most of you haven't so I'll mention it. Its probably about time we do a little house cleaning in Yemen. I don't imagine the Saudi's are all that pleased with having a bunch of loons on their southern borders...

SAN'A, Yemen - Two AK-47 assault rifles used in a deadly attack on the U.S. consulate in Saudi Arabia have been traced to Yemen's Defense Ministry, according to Western and Yemeni officials, raising new fears that the country isn't doing enough to fight terrorism.

The revelation comes five years after al-Qaida-linked militants bombed the USS Cole destroyer on Oct. 12, 2000, at the port in San'a, the capital, killing 17 sailors.

In other worrying developments, Yemeni militants are believed to be among foreigners fighting U.S.-led coalition forces in Iraq, U.S. and Iraqi officials have said.
