Suspected terrorist Moussaoui transferred to Washington area for trial

Updated:

ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) _ Zacarias Moussaoui, the first man indicted in the Sept. 11 attacks, was flown Wednesday from New York to this Washington suburb and briefly appeared in the courthouse where he will be tried.

Sporting a full beard and wearing a brown shirt and khaki pants, Moussaoui sat motionless between his attorneys as the six charges accusing him of conspiring to murder thousands were read by U.S. Magistrate Thomas Jones.

``Your honor, on counts one, two, three and four, the maximum penalty is death,'' Assistant U.S. Attorney Robert Spencer told the magistrate.

Moussaoui was transported amid tight security from New York, where he had been held since shortly after the Sept. 11 attack, to the U.S. District Courthouse in Alexandria, Va., a short distance from the site where one jetliner crashed into the Pentagon.
