Deliberations to begin soon in terrorism trial

   NEW BERN, N.C. (AP) - A jury will soon begin deliberations in
the trial of three North Carolina men charged with being part of a
conspiracy to commit a terrorist attack at the U.S. Marine Corps
base in Quantico, Va., or targets overseas.
     Lawyers finished their closing arguments Tuesday in the trial of
Mohammad Omar Aly Hassan, Ziyad Yaghi and Hysen Sherifi. They all
have pleaded not guilty.
     Prosecutors say the men plotted terror attacks under the
leadership of Daniel Boyd, who pleaded guilty to related charges in
February.
     Defense lawyers say the Muslim men broke no laws despite
debating contentious ideas within their religion and watching
jihadist videos that others might deem reprehensible.
