US prosecutors to push for 9/11 trial date

Five men accused of plotting attacks have been arraigned 17 months ago, but still have no trial date.

    Five men accused of planning the 9/11 attacks in the US will be back in court this week, 17 months after the arraignment.

    It is another pre-trial hearing in a military courtroom in Guantanamo Bay, but this time prosecutors will ask the judge to start the trial on September 22, 2014.
