Christmas Tree Bomb Trial To Begin

PORTLAND, Ore. — The trial for the man accused trying to blow up a bomb at a Portland Christmas tree lighting ceremony is expected this week.

Mohamed Muhamud allegedly attempted to detonate an 1,800 pound explosive device provided by undercover FBI agents. It was all part of a sting to capture potential terrorists.

Prosecutors argue that he was predisposed to committing terrorist acts before the sting ever began.
