Virginia — Relatives of the 17 sailors killed in the 2000 bombing of the Navy destroyer USS Cole are asking for the right to seek emotional-distress claims against the Republic of Sudan, which they say provided financial support and safe harbor for al-Qaida terrorists.

An attorney representing 59 relatives on Tuesday asked a three-judge panel of the 4th US Circuit Court of Appeals to overturn a lower court's ruling that barred the families from seeking punitive damages under state law.
