A Jordanian military tribunal on Wednesday began hearing the case of 12 militants charged with firing rockets at two US warships docked in Aqaba Bay last August. The six accused present in the courtroom all pleaded not guilty. The others charged in the case remain at large and are believed to be in Iraq. Two rockets fired from a warehouse on the outskirts of Jordan's sole Red Sea port narrowly missed the USS Ashland docked in Aqaba Bay on Aug. 19. Al-Qaida in Iraq, the group led by Jordanian-born Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi, claimed responsibility for the incident.
