9/11 victim's dad watches hearing in son's memory

NEW YORK (AP) - Family members of some 9/11 victims are watching on closed-circuit TV as the self-proclaimed mastermind of the attacks and four co-defendants are arraigned at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba.

Jim Riches was among the family members watching Saturday from one a New York City military base, one of four where the proceedings are being shown.

Riches says he came to watch the arraignment for his son, Jimmy Riches, a firefighter who died at the World Trade Center.

Riches says he came because his son can no longer speak for himself, but that watching the men brought to justice won't bring his son back.

Riches is a retired firefighter who worked digging up remains in the days after Sept. 11. He says he hopes the men are executed if they're found guilty.
