Six people have now been indicted in the World Trade Center bombing in February, but the authorities say about a dozen people planned the blast that killed five and injured more than 1,000, AP reports from New York. The sixth indictment was returned on Wednesday against Ahmad Ajaj, 27, accusing him of conspiring with the five other defendants, including one who is a fugitive. Mr Ajaj, a Palestinian, has been in custody since 9 March, but was only recently charged in the bombing, apparently because the investigators had been seeking his co-operation.
