“Six men went on trial in Miami on Tuesday for a second time on charges they plotted to blow up the tallest American skyscraper, Chicago’s Sears Tower, and several government offices on behalf of al Qaeda.

A jury failed in December to reach a verdict on the six and acquitted one co-defendant in a first trial, leading District Judge Joan Lenard to declare a mistrial.” (Reuters)
