MIAMI (AP) - Security and other issues are the subjects of a hearing in the Florida terrorism-related case of two brothers now accused of assaulting deputy U.S. marshals.
U.S. District Judge Robert Scola set a hearing Friday morning in the case of Sheheryar and Raess Alam Qazi. They have pleaded not guilty to charges of plotting to blow up New York City landmarks to avenge deadly U.S. drone strikes in Pakistan.
Last month, authorities say the brothers attacked two deputy U.S. marshals at a facility where they view classified evidence. Scola wants to know if enhanced security measures are needed there and in court.
There are also questions about whether the brothers' lawyer can represent them because he saw the alleged attack and would be a witness if they are charged with assault.
