Video of ex-al-Qaida spokesman shown to NY jurors

In this courtroom sketch, Sulaiman Abu Ghaith, center, is flanked by his legal team Monday during jury selection at the start of his trial in New York on charges that he conspired to kill Americans and support terrorists in his role as al-Qaida's spokesman after the Sept. 11 attacks. Abu Ghaith is Osama bin Laden's son-in-law and is the highest-ranking al-Qaida figure to face trial on U.S. soil since the Sept. 11 attacks.
