Pirate Faces Trial in New York

The wheels of justice are already turning: Abdulawali Muse, one of four teen pirates who attacked the U.S.-flagged Maersk Alabama last week, is being extradited to the United States to face trial in a New York court. Muse, of course, is the only survivor among the attackers—his three accomplices were shot dead by Navy SEALs as they held Captain Richard Phillips hostage at gunpoint. CBS reports that Muse, 19, will be tried in New York’s Southern District, where Ramzi Yousef, who masterminded the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, and other terror suspects have been tried. No word yet on when he’ll be transported to New York.
