Closing arguments to begin in 'Newburgh 4' terror trial

Posted: Updated:

Closing arguments are set to begin today in the terror trial of four Newburgh men who've been accused of plotting to blow up synagogues and shoot down airplanes.

Prosecutors say the four men were plotting to destroy several Bronx synagogues with fake explosives they allegedly purchased from an FBI informant, and that the men also planned to shoot down military planes at Stewart Air Base.

The defense has repeatedly claimed that the four were entrapped by the FBI.

Their trial began in August.
