[JURIST] A trial began Monday in Rabat of five Moroccans formerly held by the US at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, charged with belonging to or assisting a criminal group that was preparing to commit terrorist acts. The five, turned over to Moroccan authorities in August, are all alleged to be Al Qaeda members and are said to include a former bodyguard for Osama Bin Laden. Their case represents the first time that ex-Guantanamo detainees have been tried in a Arab country. Further proceedings have been postponed until December 20 to allow the defense more time to prepare. From Rabat, Moroccan news agency MAP provides local coverage in English. AP has more.
