1996: A truck bomb explodes at the Khobar Towers in Khobar, Saudi Arabia, killing 19 U.S. Air Force personnel and injuring another 372 people. At the time the building was being used as housing for foreign military personnel. An official statement by the United States named members of Hezbollah Al-Hejaz as responsible. On June 21, 2001, an indictment was issued in United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia in Alexandria, Virginia, charging 13 Saudis and one Lebanese man with murder, conspiracy and other charges related to the bombing.
