Jury Selection for Alleged Bomb Maker

NPR's Mike Shuster reports that jury selection begins today in Los Angeles in the federal trial of Ahmed Ressam , the Algerian man who's accused of trying to smuggle bomb making materials into the United States. He was arrested in December of 1999, while crossing from Canada into Washington State. Prosecutors will argue that Ressam was part of a conspiracy to blow up public facilities during the Year 2000 celebrations.
