U.S. prosecutors and defense attorneys for five defendants in the September 11 attacks dug in on Sunday, May 6, for a long legal battle that one lawyer said may never be resolved. The five men accused of orchestrating the September 11 attacks, including the self-proclaimed mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, are charged with the worst terror attack in U.S. history, including 2,976 counts of murder for the 2001 attacks.
