Confessed 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheik Mohammed and his four co-accused will face a federal trial in New York City -- not a military tribunal in Guantánamo, Attorney General Eric Holder announced Friday.
Charges against the alleged al Qaeda kingpin have not yet been filed in the Manhattan court.
But President Barack Obama's administration has decided to abandon a Pentagon prosecution and pursue the case of the mass murder case of nearly 3,000 people on Sept. 11, 2001 in a civilian setting.
``They will be brought to New York -- to New York -- to answer to their alleged crimes in a courtroom just blocks away from where the Twin Towers once stood,'' Holder said.
