Last June, a truck bomb parked outside a US military base in
Dhahran, Saudi Arabia, killed 19 US servicemen and wounded
400 people. Now, the Canadian government is holding two
Saudi men that it claims were involved in the bombing.

Canadian intelligence officials say that one of the men, 28-year-
old Hani Abdel-Rahim Hussein al-Sayegh, was a driver who
helped set up the bombing. They also say that his affiliation
with an Iranian-backed organization in Saudi Arabia links the
bombing to Tehran.
