Suspected Embassy Bombing Planner Pleads Not Guilty In Federal Court

Play associated audio
The man accused of being an al-Qaeda operative and a key planner of the 1998 Africa embassy bombings pleaded not guilty Tuesday in federal court. Abu Anas al-Libi was captured about ten days ago by U.S. Special Operating Forces in Tripoli and was held in military custody aboard a Navy ship. Over the weekend he arrived in New York, the jurisdiction where he'd been indicted in the Embassy bombings case. Al-Libi's case raises again the question of what to do with terrorists who are captured: whether to have them stand trial in federal court or hold them at the detention facility in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
