Guantanamo Detainees: U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder announced that five men being held in Guantanamo prison in connection with the September 11, 2001 attack on the World Trade Center will face trial in federal court in New York City: Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, Ali Abd al-Aziz Ali, Walid bin Attash, Mustafa Ahmed al-Hawsawi and Ramzi bin al-Shibh. These defendants could face the federal death penalty. (C. Savage, “U.S. To Try Avowed 9/11 Mastermind Before Civilian Court in New York,” New York Times, November 14, 2009.) UPDATE: Holder announced in 2011 that these detainees will be tried before military commissions, possibly in Guantanamo, rather than under the federal death penalty.

Five other detainees held in connection with other acts of terrorism will face trials before military commissions: Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, Ahmed Mohammed Ahmed Haza al-Darbi, Ibrahim Ahmed Mahmoud al-Qosi, Oma Ahmed Khadr, and Noor Uthman Muhammed.
