Boston Mayor Tries To Block Yemen Tankers
Tankers from Yemen deliver natural gas on a regular basis to Boston Harbor.
Now Boston's mayor is trying to stop them from docking there.
Mayor Thomas Menino is asking city attorneys to see if he can legally stop Yemen tankers from docking because of the threat of terrorism emanating from that nation. The move follows the Christmas Day attempt to blow up a Northwest Airlines flight from Amsterdam to Detroit. The suspect received his orders from al Qaeda in Yemen.
