Jury selection for terror suspects on hold

Jury selection in the trial of four Newburgh men accused of plotting to blow up synagogues and shoot down military planes was put on hold today after a judge discovered some of the prosecution's paperwork was never shown to the defense.

A small group of supporters gathered outside of the federal court in White Plains to voice their beliefs that the four suspects are mere victims of entrapment and not the terrorists they're suspected of being.

The men were arrested last May after law enforcement officials allegedly caught them planting bombs outside Bronx synagogues.

The defense is expected to argue that the FBI bribed the suspects with money and gifts in exchange for carrying out the plot.
