Stanley Cohen, one of the defense lawyers for Osama bin Laden’s son-in-law and former spokesman of Al-Qaeda Sulaiman Abu Ghaith, speaks to media in front of the federal courthouse in Manhattan on September 23, 2014. A US court sentenced Abu Ghaith to life in prison on Tuesday. The 48-year-old Kuwaiti, who has defended the September 11, 2001 attacks, was found guilty on March 26 of plotting to kill Americans and providing material support to terrorists. Before the sentence was handed down in a US federal courtroom, Abu Ghaith spoke in Arabic through a translator to say the only judgement he would accept was that of God. AFP PHOTO / YANA PASKOVA
