U.S. to pursue charges against alleged 911 mastermind

Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. Khalid Sheikh Mohammed.

More than 10 years after the September Eleventh terrorist attacks, U.S. officials announced they will go ahead with charges against Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four other people suspected of plotting the attacks.

That means there's enough evidence for a trial.

Khalid Sheikh Mohammed is the accused mastermind.

The five men are charged with the planning and execution of the 2001 attacks in New York, Washington D.C., and Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

They face several charges, including terrorism, conspiracy and murder.
