Text size Aa Aa

The jury deciding the fate of September the 11th conspirator Zacarias Moussaoui is resuming its deliberations. They did not reach a verdict after three hours yesterday and are due to return to court today. The prosecution is calling for the death penalty; the defence team says that would make him a martyr.

Rosemary Dillard lost her husband in the attacks: “And for him, or any man or woman, to sit there and smile at the death of children, to make light of the pain and suffering of others, what reason does that person have to live. “And to think that’s going to make him a martyr? No, that doesn’t make him a martyr. It makes him one dead Muslim man.” Moussaoui says he would have taken part in the September the 11th attacks had he not been arrested the previous month on immigration charges. The defence is calling on the jury to sentence him to life in prison.
