After deportation of acquitted defendant, jury selection begins for retrial of remaining 6 terrorist suspects
By The Associated Press

MIAMI (AP) - Jury selection is underway for the retrial of 6 men charged in Miami with conspiring with al-Qaida to destroy Chicago's Sears Tower and blow up FBI offices around the country.

The first trial of the so-called "Liberty City Seven" ended in a hung jury in December for 6 of the suspects and one was acquitted. The man who was cleared in the case, Lyglenson Lemorin, is being deported to his native Haiti but is expected to testify for the defense in the second trial.

Jury selection is likely to take two weeks or more, with special attention given to how much prospective jurors know about the heavily publicized case. The jurors' identities will be kept secret and they will be driven to and from the courthouse by federal marshals.

The six men from Miami's impoverished Liberty City neighborhood face up to 70 years in prison if convicted on all four conspiracy and material support charges.
