  1. U.S. Grapples with Terrorism on Anniversary of Boston Bombing

    Some 36,000 runners will participate in Tuesday’s Boston Marathon, paying tribute to the victims and survivors of last year’s bombing. Meanwhile, military tribunal hearings are scheduled to take place in Guantanamo Bay, focusing on five alleged 9/11 conspirators, including the self-proclaimed “mastermind” Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. Another terror suspect — radical Muslim cleric Abu Hamza — will go on trial in New York City on Monday, following his extradition from the UK. He faces charges of hostage-taking, advocating jihad and establishing a jihad training camp.
