New Trial Date Set for Accused Terrorist Khalid Aldawsari

fbi.gov

The trial of accused terrorist Khalid Aldawsari will not take place in Lubbock.

The new presiding judge over the case, Judge Donald Walker, Senior United States District Judge for the Western District of Louisiana, last week moved the trial from Lubbock to Amarillo. Judge Walker replaced Judge Sam Cummings who originally presided over the case.

Last year in February, Aldawsari, a Saudi Arabia native, was arrested in Lubbock after the FBI detected the purchase of chemicals that could be used to create an improvised explosive device (IED).

Personal papers seized show that among Alsawsari’s potential targets was the home of former President George W. Bush.

The now 21 year-old Aldawsari is accused of attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction. The trial will start on June 21.
