Judge orders anonymous jury in subway bomb plot
NEW YORK -- A federal judge has ordered an anonymous jury for the upcoming trial of a New York City man accused of plotting to attack the city's subway system with homemade bombs.
The judge hasn't yet decided whether the jurors should be escorted daily from their homes to the court.
The Daily News says prosecutors have requested the extra security, citing the "extraordinarily compelling facts" surrounding the case.
Adis Medunjanin is accused of plotting with two accomplices to bomb subway lines during rush hour near the eighth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. He's also accused of trying to recruit a fourth person to travel to Pakistan "to wage violent jihad."
Authorities have called it one of the most serious terrorism threats since 9/11.
Medunjanin has pleaded not guilty.
