Jurors in the Fort Dix case were given their instructions on the law yesterday, setting the stage for closing arguments Monday and Tuesday.

The anonymously chosen jurors could have the case by the end of Tuesday. They will be sequestered until they reach a verdict.

They will be considering the fate of five foreign-born Muslim men who are accused of plotting an armed attack on Fort Dix, inspired by jihadist videos downloaded from the Internet.

The defense has argued that the men did nothing more than engage in some tough talk, and that they never formulated a plan to do anything. Testimony, which lasted eight weeks, wrapped up on Wednesday. - Troy Graham
