Twenty years after the 9/11 terror strike in the United States, the alleged main conspirator Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and his four other accomplices will face trial for the first time on January 11, 2021. Currently, the five are detained at the Guantanamo Bay prison camp.
The terror strike responsibility was taken by Afghanistan-based terror outfit Al Qaeda. Mustafa al-Hawsawi, Walid bin Attash, Ammar al-Baluch, and Ramzi bin al-Shibh are the four co-conspirators of Mohammed in hijacking four U.S. aircrafts and crashing them into the World Trade Centre located in the heart of the New York city.
The long due war crime trial hearing was set by Justice Colonel Shane Cohen, a military judge at the US Navy’s Guantanamo Bay prison in Cuba. The five was charged of terrorist attack, conspiracy, and violation of war laws.
