Potential jurors questioned in Mumbai terror trial

Potential jurors questioned in Mumbai terror trial

A federal judge has excused more than 20 possible jurors in the trial of a Chicago businessman accused in the deadly 2008 Mumbai attacks.
Questions for would-be jurors at Tahawwur Rana's trial have focused on Islam, terrorism and citizenship.
Rana is accused of providing cover for a former school classmate to scout out sites in Mumbai in the rampage that killed more than 160 people.
He's a Pakistani-born Muslim but has Canadian citizenship and had been living in Chicago legally for years.
One potential juror was dismissed after she said she was scared to be a juror for a terrorism case. Another man who suggested all terrorists are Muslims said he couldn't be fair to the defendant.
Twelve jurors and six alternates will be chosen from nearly 100.
