US mulls new 'terror' laws

Legislation would strip suspects of US citizenship even before facing trial.

    A bill has been introduced into the US Congress, to strip US citizens accused of terrorist links of their citizenship even before they face trial.

    The proposed legislation comes as US officials continue to investigate possible links between New York bomb suspect Faisal Shahzad, and fighters in Pakistan.
