Osama bin Laden's son-in-law expected in federal court today after capture – Susan Candiotti reports


Osama bin Laden's son-in-law is scheduled to be in a New York City courtroom Friday morning to face charges of trying to kill Americans.

Sulaiman Abu Ghaith, who served as an al Qaeda spokesman, was captured and taken to the United States, federal officials announced Thursday.

Abu Ghaith was captured within the past week in Jordan, according to a spokesman for U.S. Rep. Peter King of New York. He was charged in a federal indictment with conspiracy to kill U.S. nationals, the Department of Justice announced.

This morning on "Early Start," CNN's Susan Candiotti previews today's arraignment in federal court in New York.
