“On October 6, 2002, Yemeni operatives affiliated with al Qaeda drove a boat bomb alongside the French supertanker Limburg, which was carrying almost 400,000 barrels of oil of the coast of Aden. The attack killed one sailor but failed to sink the ship or start the inferno the terrorists hoped for.”
