Prosecutors wrapping up Chicago terrorism case

June 1, 2011 - 3:28 AM

CHICAGO (AP) — With their star witness off the stand, federal prosecutors are set to call their remaining witnesses in the trial of a Chicago businessman accused in the 2008 Mumbai attacks.

David Headley finished five days of testimony Tuesday. He's an admitted terrorist who pleaded guilty to scoping out sites for the attack that killed more than 160.

He's detailed how he worked for a militant terrorist group and Pakistani intelligence as he took video surveillance in Mumbai. But defense attorneys for Tahawwur Rana (tuh-HOW'-ur RAH'-nah) say Headley isn't credible and used Rana, his longtime friend.

Rana is accused of providing Headley cover as he took surveillance. He's pleaded not guilty.

Prosecutors expect to call up to eight more witnesses starting Wednesday.
