Terrorism trial of 3 men begins in Toledo

The trial of three suspected terrorists began Tuesday morning in U.S. District Court in Toledo with a federal attorney outlining more than three years of intelligence gathering on what he called "a terrorist cell here in Toledo, Ohio." In an opening statement that lasted for more than 40 minutes, Assistant U.S. Attorney Thomas Getz said that the case against Mohammad Zaki Amawi, 28; Marwan Othman El- Hindi, 45, and Wassim I. Mazloum, 26, involved the use of a secret informant who spent years with the three men gaining their trust and sharing their plot with authorities.
