The Pentagon says a Guantanamo Bay prisoner accused of planning the October 2000 attack on the USS Cole will be arraigned Oct. 26 before a military judge at the U.S. Navy base in Cuba.
The prisoner, Abd al-Nashiri, would face charges that include murder in violation of the law of war for allegedly planning the attack that killed 17 sailors and wounded 40 while the Navy destroyer was on a refueling stop in the Yemeni port of Aden.
This would be the first death-penalty war crimes trial for a prisoner at Guantanamo under President Barack Obama.
Obama had pledged to close the detention center but ran into congressional opposition to moving detainees to the U.S.
