Jury selection begins in trial of 'Newburgh Four'

Posted: Updated:

Jury selection is under way in the terror plot trial of four Muslim men from Orange County.

The men, known as the "Newburgh Four," are accused of attempting to blow up synagogues in the Bronx and shoot down military planes at Stewart Air National Guard Base last year.

Family members and lawyers for the suspects say the men were entrapped by an undercover FBI informant.

The trial was moved from White Plains to a federal court in New York City for security reasons.
