Hearings begin for 9 Australian terror suspects

March 5, 2007 07:54

A hearing began Monday to determine whether nine members of an alleged Islamic terror cell should stand trial over claims they stockpiled bomb-making materials in a plot to attack Australia's only nuclear reactor. The men, who were arrested in a series of pre-dawn raids in late 2005, stand accused of conspiracy to make explosives in preparation for a terrorist attack, and being members of a terrorist group. A hearing to determine whether there is enough evidence to go to trial began Monday at the Penrith District Court amid tight security.
