As victims testify, Nidal Hasan asks judge to accomodate prayer schedule

Admitted Fort Hood shooter Nidal Hasan didn’t cross-examine any of the 17 witnesses who testified today, but he did raise a couple of objections, including his objection to a break which interfered with his prayer schedule.

Hasan also objected to a description of the surgeries performed to remove bullets from the surviving shooting victims, calling it aggravating evidence best reserved for the sentencing phase.

As of today, 44 witnesses have testified against Hasan.

The court martial resumes Monday morning and is expected to continue through the week.!/CNNExpress/status/365950673004670976
