CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) - The video that spurred the investigation of
five men accused of plotting an attack on Fort Dix shows some of
them in camouflage clothing, firing rapid-fire weapons.
The men -- all foreign-born Muslims in their 20s who have lived
for years in New Jersey -- are charged with conspiracy to murder
military personnel, attempted murder and weapons offenses. They
could face life in prison if they're convicted.
The suspects shot the video themselves in 2006. One of them
later took it to a store to have it converted to DVD. The store
clerk who worked on the project was alarmed at seeing the men shoot
the weapons and shout, "Allah Akbar," which is Arabic for "God
is great," and alerted police.
The video was one of two that jurors were shown in the first day
of testimony at their trial.
