The ceremony comes after a Pentagon official recently approved charges that carry a possible death penalty for a Guantanamo prisoner accused of planning the attack. Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri is to be arraigned Nov. 9 at the U.S. military base in Cuba. The attack on the U.S. destroyer killed 17 sailors and wounded 37.

Police explain why Pentagon roads were closed

Why were the roads shutdown around the Pentagon after last Friday's incident involving a Marine Corps Reserve Lance Corporal? "Based on the fact that he had fled from the Fort Meyers Police Department that he wasn't forthcoming with his information and as far as identifiers and what he was doing and he did have some products with him that were a little bit concerning initially. That's we felt it as appropriate to close these roadways down," says U.S. Park Police spokesman Sgt. David Schlosser. Yonathan Melaku was taken into custody after being caught on the grounds of Arlington Cemetery after dark. His car was found near the Pentagon.
