Australian Detainee Has Hearing at Guantanamo

At Guantanamo Naval Base on Monday, the U.S. military arraigned Australian detainee David Hicks on one count of providing material support for terrorism.

Hicks is the first terrorism suspect to be prosecuted under revised military tribunals. The rules were rewritten last year after the Supreme Court found the Pentagon's system for trying Guantanamo detainees unconstitutional.
