Lebanon puts off trial of suspect in alleged NY terror plot

Post by Admin on Sun Apr 20, 2008 6:10 am

Lebanon's
state-run news agency says a military court has postponed the trial of
an alleged al-Qaida loyalist accused of plotting to attack New York
City train tunnels.

The report says the trial of Assem
Hammoud, initially scheduled to start Friday, has been put off until
October because the U.S. investigation appears to be continuing.


Hammoud
was arrested in Lebanon in 2006 in a plot allegedly involving at least
eight people. The FBI said the plotters planned to bomb and flood
Hudson River train tunnels that carry more than 215,000 passengers each
weekday between New York and New Jersey.


Lebanese
authorities said they found maps and bombing plans on Hammoud's
personal computer. They said he confessed to the plot and swore
allegiance to al-Qaida.
