A death penalty trial was established for Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four other men involved in the planning of Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks in New York City and Washington, D.C.
Colonel W. Shane Cohen of the U.S. Air Force announced on Aug. 30 that the trial was set for Jan. 11, 2021, and it will take place at Camp Justice at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba.
The New York Times reported that a military jury would be selected in the case.
Mohammed and four others have been accused of plotting the terror attacks that left nearly 3,000 people dead in New York, Washington, and Pennsylvania. He could face the death penalty if convicted. MORE
