CAMDEN, N.J. – The jury in the trial of five men accused of plotting to attack soldiers on the Army's Fort Dix is going to deliberate over the weekend.
Jurors finished their third full day of deliberations Friday at 4:30 p.m. EST and said they would be back at 9:30 a.m. Saturday.
U.S. District Judge Robert Kugler said jurors told him they were "making progress" and that they might deliberate on Sunday, too.
The jury is sequestered in a hotel overnight.
The jury has not asked the court a question since Wednesday, when the panel of eight women and four men asked for transcripts of some testimony.
The five foreign-born Muslims on trial face charges including conspiracy to kill military personnel and attempted murder.
Federal authorities portray the case as an example of efforts to stop terrorist attacks before they happen. But defense lawyers say the men, who lived for years in the Philadelphia suburb of Cherry Hill, were not planning anything.
