Official statement on letter-bomb blast
Al-Khobar 2nd May 2001

Gary Hatch, a physiotherapist working with the Saad Medical Center

At 8:30 am on Wednesday, 2 May 2001, a physiotherapist of American nationality, was injured in his office at Saad Medical Hospital here, due to a blast, said the Director of Police in the Eastern region, in a statement to the Saudi Press Agency.

 The physiotherapist received injuries to his face, hands and left knee in the blast, which occurred in an envelope that he had thought contained a videotape, the statement said.

The injured physiotherapist was rushed for medical treatment, while the security authorities have started conducting investigations into the incident, it added.

Hatch, 40, who has been working in the Kingdom for the last six years, has been admitted to the Aramco Hospital in Dhahran. Doctors described his condition as serious, but stable.

A series of blasts in the Kingdom late last year, which left one Briton dead and four other people wounded, have been linked to a multimillion-dollar alcohol smuggling business.
