Accused in Sept. 11 case to face 1 less charge

Published: 01.10.13, 08:51 / Israel News

The chief prosecutor for the Guantanamo Bay military tribunals said Wednesday that he is seeking to withdraw one of the eight charges against five men accused of planning and aiding the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.


Army Brig. Gen. Mark Martins said he has asked a Pentagon legal official to dismiss the charge of conspiracy to comply with an appeals court ruling in a separate case, but the men will still face charges that include nearly 3,000 counts of murder each and could still get the death penalty if convicted at a trial at the US base in Cuba.
