Uss Cole, (AP) – Sailors with injuries suffered 10 years ago during the attack on USS Cole are pursuing damages in Sudan.

The complaint was filed Monday in Washington on behalf of eight sailors aboard the destroyer and two of their spouses. They say they have suffered from surgeries for injuries and burns, scars, hearing loss and posttraumatic stress.

Earlier, members of the family of the 17 sailors killed in the attack and won 13 million in damages from Sudan.

Sudan has denied responsibility and refused to pay.

Families convinced a court of the United States that support Sudan allowed al-Qaida suicide bombers to attack the destroyer at a port in Yemen on October 12, 2000. The price was finally deducted from Sudanese assets frozen by the government of the United States.
