Five American men suspected of plotting attacks in Pakistan were due to appear in a Pakistani court Monday, with police expected to seek terrorism charges that could carry life sentences. The men were arrested in early December in the eastern Pakistani city of Sargodha in a case that has spurred fears that Westerners are traveling to Pakistan to join al-Qaida and other militant groups. Police said recently they would seek life sentences on terror charges against the five young Muslim men, who are from the Washington, DC, area. Under Pakistan's complicated judicial system, police were expected to recommend charges during Monday's session. However, the anti-terrorism court did not have to charge the men immediately, and they were likely to be given time to prepare their defense.
