Mobilian Still Missing in Iraq

By Alabama Public Radio

Mobile, AL – The family of a Mobile civilian contractor who is missing in Iraq will celebrate his birthday Tuesday without him for the second year in a row. Tim Bell disappeared in Iraq in April 2004. Tuesday marks his 46th birthday. Bell was driving a truck in a jet fuel convoy when it was attacked. Six contractors and two soldiers died as a result of the attack. Bell and an Ohio reservist disappeared. Bell had gone to Iraq to work for Kellogg, Brown and Root, a subsidiary of Halliburton Company. His family has joined a lawsuit against Halliburton in Texas state court, along wiht the family members of six other dead civilians. The suit claims that Halliburton concealed the dangers of working in Iraq and failed to protect workers once they were there.
