GUANTANAMO BAY NAVAL BASE, Cuba
A pretrial hearing in the Sept. 11 war crimes case has ended at the Guantanamo Bay naval base amid uncertainty over an apparent FBI investigation of the defense.
Officials say they don't know the scope of the investigation. Judge Pohl says it appears to target the legal team for Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and the release of writings by the self-proclaimed terrorist mastermind.
It has stalled progress toward trial for the five men charged in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attack.
