Khalid Aldawsari Bomb Trial Continues on Monday
Prosecutors used scores of photographs to show jurors chemicals and other materials that FBI agents found in the apartment of accused terrorist Khalid Aldawsari.
Photos presented Friday showed bottles of sulfuric acid and nitric acid, and other materials that included wiring, Christmas lights and a hazmat suit that Aldawsari allegedly ordered online before his February 2011 arrest.
Defense attorney Dan Cogdell obtained testimony that none of the bottles had opened and were still sealed when seized by the agents at his client’s North Lubbock apartment.
Cogdell argued Friday that Aldawsari never had a specific plan to use a bomb.
Aldawsari faces up to life in prison if convicted of attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction, with intended use on the Dallas home of former President George W. Bush.
Testimony resumes on Monday in Amarillo.
