The self-proclaimed mastermind of the September 11 terror attacks has lost an appeal to delay his court appearance on Monday because of rats and mold, a defense lawyer told AFP.
Judge James Pohl’s decision was still sealed Thursday, three days before the hearing in question, but lawyer James Connell said he had received word mid-afternoon local time.
Khalid Sheikh Mohammed’s “emergency motion to delay October hearings — due to defense offices deemed unsafe due to the presence of hazardous mold, rodents and rodent feces — was denied,” announced Connell, defense lawyer for one of the five men accused of plotting the September 11 attacks, the worst attacks on US soil.
