Terrorism Trial

Linda Wertheimer talks with NPR's Melissa Block about the federal government's closing arguments in the trial of four men charged in the 1998 bombings of U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania. The prosecution argued today that it has proven the bombings were carried out as part of a plot by followers of Saudi exile Osama bin Laden to wage Jihad -- or holy war -- against America. If convicted, two of the defendants could face the death penalty.
