Trial put on hold for accused USS Cole bomber
NewsChannel 3 has learned more details about the man accused of masterminding the attack on the USS Cole.
The trial has been put on hold because they can’t decide whether Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri should have to be present in court.
Al-Nashiri boycotted the pretrial motions in protest of the use of belly chains at Guantanamo Bay Cuba.
Now prosecutors want to make him sit in court while he’s tried for killing 17 sailors in the bombing.
Al-Nashiri’s lawyers argue forcing him out of the cell would traumatize him because of the torture he’s experienced in Gitmo.
And before that conflict is even decided, there’s now concern about tropical storm Sandy.
We’ll let you know when a decision is made.
