Chicago native David Headley was sentenced to 35 years in prison on Thursday for his role in the 2008 terrorist attack in Mumbai, India, and for planning another attack in Copenhagen, Denmark.
It has been called the biggest terror trial ever in Chicago. But it’s even bigger overseas.
An admitted American terrorist who is the government’s star witness in the trial of a Chicago businessman accused in the deadly 2008 Mumbai attacks said Tuesday that another militant with ties to al-Qaida had once plotted to attack U.S. defense contractor Lockheed Martin.
Newly released, amateurish “home videos” from a terrorist scouting sites to attack seem a little bit charming — and a whole lot chilling. They came out Thursday in federal court, where a Chicago businessman faces terrorist conspiracy charges, CBS 2’s Derrick Blakley reports.
Prosecutors and defense attorneys say they’re on track for a February trial of a Chicago businessman charged in connection with 2008 terrorist attacks in India.
