MIAMI (AP) - The third federal trial of the Miami terror
suspects dubbed the "Liberty City Six" is set to begin with jury
selection next week.
Federal prosecutors will try to persuade a jury that six men
from a poor Miami neighborhood were a blossoming al-Qaida cell bent
on overthrowing the U.S. government. Authorities said the men
planned to destroy Chicago's 110-story Sears Tower.
Trials in 2007 and 2008 ended in hung juries for the six, with a
seventh man acquitted after the first trial. Jurors in both cases
said later they were skeptical of prosecutors' claims that Narseal
Batiste - the alleged ringleader - was trying to orchestrate a
grandiose bloodbath when he had money problems and a difficult time
keeping his construction business afloat.
