|Shoe-bomb witness to speak from London at NY trial
Updated Mar 10, 07:45 AM
NEW YORK - The trial of Osama bin Laden's son-in-law and al-Qaida spokesman after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks is resuming Monday with the airing of testimony from a London resident who says he participated in a 2001 shoe-bomb plot.
Some of the lawyers in the case flew to London on Friday to pose questions.
Prosecutors are using the testimony to try to show that Abu Ghaith knew of al-Qaida's plans when he promised in videotapes sent across the world in the weeks after the Sept. 11 attacks that "the storm of airplanes will not abate" against Americans and advised Muslims in America and Great Britain to stay off aircraft.
