Jordan - Chemical Attack Trial Underway

The trial of 13 terrorists who planned a chemial attack on Jordan is underway.

AMMAN, Jordan (AP) - Islamic militants planned to detonate an explosion that would have sent a cloud of toxic chemicals across Jordan, causing death, blindness and sickness, a chemical expert testified in a military court Wednesday.

Col. Najeh al-Azam was giving evidence in the trial of 13 men who are alleged to have planned what would have been the world's first chemical attack by the al-Qaida terror group. The accused include al-Qaida's leader in Iraq, Abu-Musab Al-Zarqawi, and three other fugitives who are being tried in absentia.

Jordanian security services foiled the plot in April last year. Jordanian officials say that had it been carried out, thousands of people would have died.

Oh, fiddle di sticks! Ya'll go on back to bed now, ya hear? There ain't no such thing as international terrorism. The BBC proved that to us in "Power of Nightmares". They said it was all just a myth and ya'll know you can trust the BBC.

Get on now, I'm busy. I gots to try on this here new tin foil hat that BBC fellar sent me. It's a brewing up a good storm with lighting and that BBC's John Simpson says it's the best time to try it on. Say's he does it all the time and that's where all his good stories come from.
