The alleged mastermind of the USS Cole bombing, Jamal Badawi, who had escaped from prison in Yemen, has been caught again according to U.S. law enforcement sources.

Badawi, along with 22 others, had escaped from jail in February through an underground tunnel. The prisoners were believed to have help from both inside and outside the prison to dig the 460-foot tunnel.

Badawi was convicted in the October 2000 bombing of the USS Cole that killed 17 sailors. He was serving a 10-year sentence.
