WASHINGTON (AFP) - The chief prosecutor for Guantanamo’s military tribunals recommended Wednesday dismissing one of eight charges against five prisoners accused over the September 11 attacks. Brigadier General Mark Martins has asked the Pentagon official who oversees the military commissions at the US military jail to drop the conspiracy charge, while keeping intact other counts for the murders of nearly 3,000 people. The men, whose trial is expected to get underway next year, face the death penalty. Martins said his move was triggered by an appeals court ruling that threw out the conviction of late Al-Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden’s former driver Salim Hamdan.
