Officially, due to be tried in 2021
Khalid Sheikh Mohammed (KSM), the alleged architect of the 9/11 attacks on the US, is due for trial along with four other men (Walid bin Attash, Ramzi bin al-Shibh, Ammar al-Baluchi and Mustafa al-Hawsawi) at a military court in Guantánamo Bay. The trial was scheduled to start on 11 January 2021, but procedural delays – compounded by the Covid-19 pandemic closing the base – have made it a long-drawn out process. More hearings were scheduled for September 2021.
