Fight brews over separate trial for 9/11 suspect

FORT MEADE, Md. (AP) — Federal prosecutors are asking a military judge to reconsider his decision to try one of the men accused of plotting the Sept. 11 terror attacks apart from the other four. Prosecutors are asking Army Col. James Pohl to hear arguments on their emergency motion involving Ramzi Binalshibh (RAM'-zee bin-al-SHEEB') first thing Monday at a pretrial hearing at the Guantanamo Bay naval base in Cuba. Pohl ruled July 24 that Binalshibh should get a separate war crimes trial because legal issues peculiar to him were preventing the larger case from moving forward. Attorneys for another defendant oppose the government's request to have the reconsideration motion heard first. That would delay arguments on their motion to sever their client's case. The hearing is being shown in a video feed at Fort Meade.
