Accused 9/11 Planner Removed from Court Hearing over Outburst

One of the men accused of planning the September 11, 2001 attacks was removed from a US military court on Tuesday after making an outburst about a secret CIA prison.

Yemeni defendant Ramzi Binalshibh, accused of helping the hijackers enter the United States and of financing the attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people, was ejected from a pre-trial hearing at the Guantanamo Bay prison camp on the judge’s orders.

His removal came shortly after Binalshibh’s lawyer suggested that guards at the US military prison in Cuba were deliberately depriving his client of sleep.
