WASHINGTON (AFP) — The Pentagon announced war crimes charges Tuesday against a British resident alleged to have conspired with al-Qaeda to launch bomb attacks on apartment buildings and gas stations in the United States.
Binyan Mohammed, an electrical engineer born in Ethiopia, was charged with conspiracy and material support for terrorism on May 28, according to charge sheets released by the Pentagon.
A Pentagon official who oversees the special military commissions set up to try "war on terror" cases in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba must review the charges and decide whether to refer them to trial.
