Victim Relatives Can See Moussaoui Death Case At 6 Sites


Survivors and relatives of Sept. 11, 2001 terror-attack victims will be able to watch the death penalty phase in the case against Zacarias Moussaoui, the only person charged in the United States in the 2001 plot, at six places, reports the Associated Press. Proceedings will be broadcast via closed-circuit television to federal courthouses in Manhattan and Long Island, N.Y.; Newark, N.J.; Philadelphia; Boston; and Alexandria, Va., said U.S. District Judge Leonie Brinkema.

Moussaoui, 37, who pleaded guilty in April to being part of a broad, radical Islamist conspiracy to fly planes into buildings. Court filings indicate that the judge and lawyers are struggling to find ways of summarizing classified evidence from detained Al Qaeda operatives and present it to the jury.
