Past Terrorism Trials

The U.S. Embassy Bombing Trials, CNN

On August 7, 1998, a truck bomb destroyed the U.S. Embassy in Kenya. Moments later another truck bomb exploded outside the U.S. Embassy in Tanzania. The bombings killed 213 in Kenya and 11 in Tanzania. The investigation led investigators to alleged terrorist Osama bin Laden and his followers. A federal grand jury has indicted 22 men with crimes related to the bombings, including bin Laden. A trial for four of the defendants began in January. CNN offers extensive materials relating to the U.S. embassy bombings trial, including transcripts of testimony, court documents, analysis, and commentary.

The Oklahoma City Bombing Trials, CNN

In June 1997, a jury convicted Timothy McVeigh of the 1995 bombing the Oklahoma City federal building, a terrorist attack that left 168 people dead. He was sentence to death and executed in 2001. The verdict for McVeigh's former army buddy Terry Nichols -- who was tried on the same 11 accounts -- was different. On December 23, a jury, after deliberating 41 hours, refused to convict Nichols of murder, instead finding him guilty of involuntary manslaughter and of conspiring with McVeigh. He was sentenced to life in prison and now awaits trial on Oklahoma state charges of murdering 168 people. Oklahoma is seeking the death penalty. CNN offers extensive materials on the trials, the bombing and the key players.
