Cambodia Set the Date for the Terrorists' Trial - 2004-01-12

A court in Phnom Penh has set the date of February 2, 2004 for the trial of two Egyptians, two Thai moslims and a Cambodia moslim who were suspected of involvement with a regional terrorist group called Jemiah Islamiyah.

The five were arrested a few days before the U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell was to arrive in Phnom Penh to attend the annual ASEAN ministerial meeting in June, 2003.

In a letter to the U.S. Ambassador Charles Ray, the presiding judge has requested for relating documents from the U.S. to prepare for the trial.
