Closed hearing scheduled in terrorism case
ATLANTA A judge has scheduled a closed-door hearing in which prosecutors and defense lawyers may discuss the disclosure of classified information in a terrorism case involving two young men with ties to the Atlanta area. Tom Clyde -- a lawyer for several media organizations including The Associated Press -- said today he is considering filing a motion objecting to the September 14th hearing being held in secret. The government has sought heightened secrecy surrounding elements of its case against Syed Ahmed and Ehsanul Islam Sadequee. The two were indicted July 19th on charges of providing material support to terrorists and related conspiracy counts. U-S Attorney David Nahmias (NAH'-mee-as) told U-S Magistrate Gerrilyn Brill that he does NOT think reporters say be allowed to -- quote -- "in any way interrupt the scheduling of this case." Clyde also represents The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, C-N-N and W-S-B T-V.
