An unidentified U.S. sailor is carried on a stretcher down the gangway of a cargo plane at Rhein-Main Air Base near Frankfurt, Germany. The soldier is part of a group of wounded who arrived Saturday from Aden, Yemen. The injured were being taken by bus to Landstuhl, about 60 miles southwest, for evaluation and treatment. Seventeen sailors died and 33 were injured in the explosion on the USS Cole while it was refueling Thursday in the Yemeni port of Aden.
