9/11 trial is met with protest in Manhattan

The trial of self-professed 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed (KSM) is being protested by NYC residents, some of whom are family and friends of 9/11 victims.

Demonstrators held signs that read “no constitutional rights for enemy combatants”. Some booed the names of Attorney General Eric Holden and President Obama.

The trial has divided the families of victims. Some say the trial is an opportunity to face the perpetrators of 9/11, while others fear the former site of the World Trade Center will become a jihadist recruitment center and that KSM should be treated like a war criminal in a military tribunal.
