New York, Jan.16 (ANI): Detained Pakistani neuroscientist, Dr Aafia Siddiqui, who is currently in custody of the US on murder charges, has said that she believes that Israel was the mastermind of the 9/11 terror attacks on America.
Siddqui, whose trial is set to begin next week, while interrupting judge Richard Berman during a quizzing session of potential jurors, said she was not associated with the 9/11 incident.
"The next question will be on anti-Semitism, Israel was behind 9/11. hat's not anti-Semitic. I have nothing to do with 9/11," she said.
The case against Siddiqui, 37, who has been charged for allegedly shooting at her US interrogators in Afghanistan in July last year, would begin in the Manhattan Federal Court on January 19.
Berman later said that anyone who disrupts proceedings will be removed, but added that Siddiqui has a right to be present for her trial and would be allowed to return, The Nation reports. (ANI)
