Defense lawyers: Don't force-feed 9/11 suspect at Guantanamo Bay

Lawyers for one of the five men accused of helping plot the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks say that their client is facing threats of being force fed amid his refusal to eat after being isolated from other prisoners in Guantánamo Bay.

The New York Times reported that defense attorneys for 49-year-old Ramzi bin al-Shibh demanded in a court filing dated July 9 that legal authorities move to prevent the alleged threats.

Bin al-Shibh and four other men accused of conspiring in the terrorist attacks have been in pretrial proceedings since their arraignment in 2012, and in April were moved to the Guantánamo maximum security prison from CIA custody.
