(Feb 02, 2008) On Monday January 14, 2008, an appeals court in Yemen ordered the release of Hezam Ali Hassan and Khaled Saleh, after they had served more than three years in prison for attempting to kill the former U.S. ambassador to Yemen, Edmund Hall. In March 2006, the two men were sentenced to five years in prison, but the sentence was later reduced on appeal to three years.
