USS Cole Bombing Suspect To Be Arraigned October 26

first_img The main suspect in the 2000 bombing of the USS Cole will be arraigned in a military tribunal in Guantanamo Bay on October 26, the Pentagon said. Saudi-born Abd al-Rahim Hussayn Muhammad al-Nashiri allegedly planned and prepared the attack on the USS Cole in Yemen’s port of Aden on October 12, 2000, which killed 17 sailors and wounded 40 more. The assault by an explosives-laden skiff blew a 30-foot by 30-foot (10m by 10m) hole in the warship. US military prosecutors also accuse Nashiri of plotting an attempted strike on USS The Sullivans in Aden in January 2000, and of planning an attack on a French civilian oil tanker MV Limburg in the Gulf of Aden in 2002 that killed a Bulgarian crew member and caused 90,000 barrels of oil to spill. It is the first new case to go to trial at the Guantanamo Bay “war on terror” tribunal since President Barack Obama took office in 2009. Nashiri will be arraigned at a newly built court house at the US naval base in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, marking his first public appearance since his 2002 detention.

Byron Scott still senses support from Lakers front office

first_imgScott revealed he and Kupchak have addressed “what we can do to get these young guys better and make the procedure for them a lot easier.”Yet, Scott said Kupchak has left Scott freedom to coach as he sees fit. “I’ve told him what I’m thinking about doing at times, some of the things I want to do with the young guys and some of the things I want to do with some of our veteran guys,” Scott said. “But as far as the coaching part, he hasn’t talked about making changes.” Changing his tuneAfter not playing in the fourth quarter of the Lakers’ blowout loss to Golden State on Tuesday, rookie point guard D’Angelo Russell sounded firm on where he stood on that issue. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error “You’re only a rookie once. You get reps now and mess up now,” Russell told Los Angeles News Group. “So then next year when you’re not a rookie, you don’t have to worry about making rookie mistakes.”Russell softened his stance following Wednesday’s practice, arguing he can learn through “both” playing and sitting.“You have to learn by experience,” Russell said, “and learn by watching.”Scott argued Russell would not have benefited from playing in garbage time.“He could also mess around and get hurt,” Scott said. “I’d rather sit him at that time and he can see what’s going on.” Change of routineScott has not changed his support for Kobe Bryant after averaging 15.2 points on a career-low 31.1 percent per game. “I know his mentality is that he can still play in this league,” Scott said. “And we feel the same way.”Scott has ruled out reducing Bryant’s minutes or his role. But Scott conceded that Bryant’s workout regimen is “sometimes too much.” “He comes out and makes 500 shots. Then the next day, he’s a little sore,” Scott said of Bryant. “He does it and I tell him to trim back on it. We have to find a happy medium.” center_img As the Lakers finished practice earlier this week, coach Byron Scott and general manager Mitch Kupchak talked near center court. Scott reported he and Kupchak have “been talking almost every other day” throughout the Lakers’ 2-12 start.They enter Friday’s game against the Portland Trail Blazers (6-10) at Moda Center with a worse start than even last season, which eventually ended with a franchise-worst 21-61 record. Yet, Scott said he still senses support from Kupchak and Lakers executive vice president of basketball personnel Jim Buss. Scott is in the second-year of a four-year contract worth $17 million, with a team option for the final season.“We still understand that this is a process,” Scott said. “We have a lot of young guys on this team that we feel will be very good players. But it’s not going to happen in a month. It’s going to take some time. It might take a year or two.”last_img read more
