Judge weighs bail for 4 accused in NY temple plot

A federal judge says she'll make a decision later this week whether to let four homegrown terror suspects out on bail.

Judge Colleen McMahon heard bail arguments Monday. The hearing was set after McMahon delayed the trial at the request of prosecutors who were dealt a setback on evidence.

Federal prosecutors say the four men accused of plotting to blow up New York synagogues and shoot a missile at military planes should not be allowed bail because they pose a threat to the public.

The men have pleaded not guilty to terrorism charges. They claim they were entrapped by a federal informant who proposed and directed the plot and then supplied the fake bombs and false missile.

AP wire services were used in this report.
