 The man who claimed he planned the 9/11 attacks is before a military tribunal at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba today. But Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four co-defendants1 would not answer the judge's questions and even refuse to listen to them by taking off the earphones that provided interpretation2 into Arabic. They’re being arraigned3 on charges including nearly 3,000 counts of murder. Some of the families of those who died are watching via closed-circuit TV. New York City Deputy Fire Chief Jim Riches lost his son on September 11th. He doesn't expect to learn anything from the defendants during the proceeding4.

"We won't know what they say because they're not saying anything, they keep their mouths shut, and they put their heads down, read newspapers, saying prayers, and you won't get it rather in court."
Riches' son Jimmy was a firefighter who died at the World Trade Center. His father said he hoped the defendants are executed if found guilty.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has left China after a trip overshadowed by negotiations5 over the fate of a dissident, who'd appealed for US protection. NPR’s Louisa Lim reports.
Chen Guangcheng remains6 in hospital, surrounded by Chinese security. Beijing has hinted it will give him a passport to study in the US. But it's not clear when he'll be able to leave China. Yesterday Chen saw US embassy staff and doctors, who confirmed he has three broken bones. Access to him is still restricted. Last night, around a dozen Western journalists were summoned for trying to interview him in hospital. They were warned their visas could be revoked7 if found inside the hospital again. Louisa Lim, NPR News, Beijing.
Security is tight in Cairo after violent clashes yesterday near the Ministry8 of Defense9. One person was killed, hundreds were injured. Merrit Kennedy reports.
Clashes erupted in the mid-afternoon between protesters and military police in front the ministry. Protesters were trapped on a narrow street as fights broke out between unidentified assailants and some demonstrators on the other end of the road. The military forcefully cleared the area and imposed a curfew around the ministry until early this morning. In a statement, the ruling military council called the actions of protesters a threat to the nation. This happened after mass marches brought thousands of protesters to the military's own doorstep. Voice and suspicion that the military would not hand over power to a democratically elected government next month as promised. For NPR News, I'm Merrit Kennedy in Cairo.
The president's reelection campaign is officially underway.
"We are going to win this thing the old-fashioned way, door by door, block by block, neighborhood by neighborhood.”
Mr. Obama spoke10 to a rally at Ohio State University earlier this afternoon. His next stop is Virginia Commonwealth11 University in Richmond, Virginia. Both those states are expected to be important in selecting the next president.

Lawyers for Jerry Sandusky have filed papers that suggest there may be more people claiming he sexually abused them than originally thought. The former Penn State University assistant football coach is charged with 52 counts of sexual abuse involving ten boys. The children have been identified only as victims one through ten. His lawyers want the judge to order the prosecution12 to handle over more documents connected to the case, including information relating to accusers' reference as one through 17 as well as 18 through an unknown number. Sandusky has maintained his innocence13.
The Archbishop of Philadelphia has suspended several priests and exonerated14 others after a 15-month investigation15. But NPR's Barbara Bradley Hagerty reports watchdog groups aren't satisfied.
Five priests are being removed from ministry for abusing or behaving inappropriately with children. Three have been exonerated and will return to ministry. Investigators16 hired by the archdiocese say they had unfettered access to documents and witnesses and did a thorough job, but Terrence McKiernan of BishopsAccountability.org says the report falls short.
"We would've liked a transparent17 assessment18 with real findings and real reasons why the priest was either allowed to remain in ministry or was going to be removed from ministry. We didn't get that."
The archdiocese says it will decide the fate of 17 other priests sometime in the next few weeks. Barbara Bradley Hagerty, NPR News.
The morning training at Churchill Downs in Louisville was canceled today after a night of thunderstorms. Officials expect the Kentucky derby will take place as scheduled at 6:24 PM Eastern Time. It's the 138th running of the first leg of horse racing19 Triple Crown.
