Pakistani citizen Aafia Siddiqui has told jurors at her trial that she was held in a secret prison in Afghanistan, her children were tortured, and the case against her is a sham.
“Since I'll never get a chance to speak," she said in the courtroom. "If you were in a secret prison, or your children were tortured…"
She insisted that she knew nothing about a plan to carry out terrorist attacks on targets in New York, The New York Daily News reported.
"Give me a little credit, this is not a list of targets of New York," she said. "I was never planning to bomb it. You're lying."
