WASHINGTON - In a political setback for President Barack Obama, the United States will try self-professed Sept. 11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four co-conspirators in a military commission at Guantanamo Bay and not in New York civil court as Obama had hoped.

US Attorney General Eric Holder will formally announce the decision at 2 p.m. (1900 GMT) on Monday, US officials said, an embarrassing reversal of the administration's decision in November 2009 to try Mohammed in a court near the site of the World Trade Center attack that killed nearly 3,000 people.

The decision was an admission that Obama has not been able to overcome political opposition to his efforts to close the prison for terrorism suspects and enemy combatants at Guantanamo Bay and try those accused of crimes in US civilian courts.
