Terror Trial Turns Into Mistrial For Liberty City Seven

One of seven defendants was acquitted Thursday of plotting to destroy Chicago’s 110 story Sears Tower and wage war against the US, and a mistrial was declared for the remaining six after the federal jury deadlocked.

The seven men were accused of plotting with al-Qaida to destroy the Sears Tower and bomb FBI offices in Miami and elsewhere. They had faced up to 70 years in prison if convicted of four terrorism-related conspiracy charges.
