Report: Khalid Sheikh Mohammed to be Arraigned in May

The alleged mastermind behind the Sept. 11 attacks will be arraigned in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, on May 5, along with four others, according to Voice of America.

Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and his alleged co-conspirators will face a military tribunal and, if convicted, could face the death penalty. They are accused of terrorism, hijacking aircraft, conspiracy, murder and other charges.

 

The trial for Mohammed was halted by the Obama administration, which wanted to try the suspects in federal court in New York. But the administration scrapped those plans in 2011 amid congressional and public outcry. The Defense Department ordered a new military trial for the suspects last week.
