NEW YORK (AP) -- Opening statements are expected to start Wednesday in the New York trial of Osama bin Laden's son-in-law.

Sulaiman Abu Ghaith is charged with conspiring to kill Americans after the Sept. 11 attacks.

Opening statements are likely to start mid-morning after the jury is selected.

Prosecutors say Abu Ghaith used his role as al-Qaida's spokesman to announce in videos with bin Laden that more attacks on the United States would be as devastating as Nine Eleven.
