Defense: Gitmo Jury Should Know Execution Method

FORT MEADE, Md. (AP) - The Guantanamo detainee accused of orchestrating the 2000 attack on the USS Cole in Yemen says his trial jury should know how he would be executed if he's sentenced to death.

An attorney for Abd al Rahim al-Nashiri made the argument Tuesday at a pretrial hearing in Cuba. A video feed of the proceeding was shown at Fort Meade, near Baltimore.

Defense attorney Richard Kammen asked the military judge to order the secretary of defense to publish the execution protocols it would use. He says jurors should know if al-Nashiri would die by lethal injection, hanging or some other method.

Prosecutors disagree. They say any method specified now could change during the lengthy appeals process that would follow al-Nashiri's sentencing, assuming he's convicted.
