WASHINGTON, D.C.: Lawyers for suspected Saudi terrorist Hani al-Sayegh say their client will cooperate with U.S. officials in their investigation of last year's Dhahran, Saudi Arabia bombing. U.S. officials believe Sayegh drove the look-out car during the June 1996 attack that killed 19 U.S. Airmen and injured 500 others. His extradition today to the U.S. ends a messy diplomatic problem for Canadian authorities who had feared embarrassment at home if Sayegh had been returned to Saudi Arabia, where he likely would have been executed in an area next to a Riyadh mosque unofficially known as "chop-chop square." --Mark Coatney
