Gitmo official: Sudanese prisoner arraigned

Gitmo official: Sudanese prisoner arraigned

A spokeswoman for Guantanamo's war court says a Sudanese detainee held at the offshore U.S. prison has been arraigned.
Air Force Lt. Col. Ann Knabe says Noor Uthman Muhammed did not enter a plea at his Wednesday arraignment. She did not offer any other details of the courtroom proceeding at the isolated U.S. base in southeast Cuba.
Muhammed is accused of conspiring with al-Qaida and providing support for terrorism. The U.S. military alleges he was a weapons instructor from 1996 and 2002.
Joseph DellaVedova, spokesman for the Office of Military Commissions, has said the maximum sentence Muhammed could receive is life in prison.
