Security costs will top

New York police commissioner Raymond Kelly said security for the upcoming trial of the Sept. 11 terror attack suspects will cost much more than the initial estimate of $75 million. Kelly drafted a security plan December 18 for the upcoming trials of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four others in New York federal court. The men have been charged with war crimes. Kelly says the costs will considerably exceed $75 million, but he would not say how much more. The initial estimate was given November 18. The NYPD says there aren't enough officers to handle trial security, so much of the cost will come from overtime and it will be impossible to accomplish without federal funds. There is no trial date yet. No decision has been made on how the cost will be paid.
