A Yemeni court acquitted 19 men charged with plotting to blow up a hotel frequented by Americans, ruling on Saturday that there were not enough proofs to sentence the alleged al-Qaida members. The defendants, 14 from Yemen and five from neighboring Saudi Arabia, were accused of having formed a gang to assassinate American and Westerners in Yemen, and of having joined the Jihad, or holy war, against the US-led coalition in Iraq.
