A federal judge has ordered an anonymous jury for the upcoming trial of a New York City man accused in one of the most serious terror plots since 9/11.
The judge reserved decision on whether the jurors should be escorted daily from their homes to the court.
Prosecutors have requested the extra security, citing the "extraordinarily compelling facts'' surrounding the case, reports the Daily News.
Adis Medunjanin and others are accused of trying to recruit someone identified only as "John Doe'' to travel to Pakistan "to wage violent jihad.''
The government says it has linked that person to what evolved into a failed 2009 scheme to attack subway lines with suicide bombers.
Medunjanin has pleaded not guilty.
