Juror removed at NYC synagogue bomb plot trial

NEW YORK - (AP) - A juror has been removed at the trial of fourmen caught in an FBI terror sting, but deliberations will go on.

A judge dismissed the juror on Tuesday after learning last weekthat the juror had accidentally seen a document that wasn't inevidence.

After denying a defense motion for a mistrial, the judge ordereddeliberations to continue with 11 jurors. Jurors are deliberatingfor a fourth day.

Prosecutors say James Cromitie hatched a plot with a paid FBIinformant to bomb New York City synagogues, and recruited his threeco-defendants to fire missiles at a New York military base.

The defense has said the government entrapped their clients.
