Verdict in Second Gitmo Trial Reached

A jury at Guantanamo's second war-crimes trial reached a verdict Friday on whether al-Qaida's alleged "media secretary" is guilty of war crimes that could put him in prison for life. But the decision will not be announced until Monday because defendant Ali Hamza al-Bahlul was already back in his maximum-security cell when the verdict was reached, said the judge, Air Force Col. Ronald Gregory. The judge told al-Bahlul no announcement would be made without his presence.
