Don't worry Brooklynites — your borough might also play host to the terror trial excitement that's sweeping Manhattan.
Federal prosecutors are considering moving suspected Al Qaeda operative Majid Khan from Guantanamo Bay to Brooklyn, where he would stand trial, the Post reports. Khan, a legal U.S. resident who lived in Maryland before traveling to Pakistan and allegedly joining the terrorist organization, is considered one of fewer than 20 Guantanamo detainees of "high value" based on their high ranks and extensive knowledge of the group.
Khan's trial — like the pending Manhattan legal proceedings against Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four other suspected 9/11 plotters — won't begin any time soon. But if he is transported to Brooklyn, there's a chance the city could turn out hosting two, or more, high profile terror trials simultaneously.
