TERROR

Pre-trial hearing continues for Guantanamo detainee suspected in 2000 attack on USS Cole

The Guantanamo detainee accused of orchestrating the 2000 attack on the USS Cole in Yemen is asking a military judge to order an MRI of his brain.

The judge for the U.S. Office of Military Commissions scheduled arguments on the motion for Tuesday at a pretrial hearing in Cuba for Abd al Rahim al-Nashiri (ahbd al-ruh-HEEM' al-nuh-SHEE'-ree).

His lawyers say the scan will help doctors determine if al-Nashiri's memory loss could be the result of post-traumatic stress or physical damage caused by harsh treatment in secret CIA prisons.

Prosecutors oppose the motion. They say the choice of diagnostic tools for al-Nashiri's medical care is beyond the commission's scope.

The Associated Press is covering the hearing from a video feed at Fort Meade, near Baltimore.
