Cohen Urges Help in U.S. Blast Probe

From Times Wire Reports

U.S. Defense Secretary William S. Cohen pressed Saudi leaders to provide more information to U.S. authorities in the investigation of a terrorist bombing in Saudi Arabia last June that killed 19 U.S. service personnel. Cohen told reporters following a meeting in Jidda with Crown Prince Abdullah and Defense Minister Prince Sultan ibn Abdulaziz that Abdullah had replied that “full cooperation would be given” in the incomplete investigation. The FBI has complained about a lack of Saudi help on the unsolved truck-bomb blast at the Khobar Towers military housing complex in Dhahran on June 25.
