A military judge ordered the US government Thursday to stop censoring hearings preparing the trial for five September 11 suspects.

Judge James Pohl said the government must "disconnect the outside feed or ability to suspend the broadcast" from outside his court. Until now proceedings were heard in the press room with a 40 second delay, so a censor could block anything deemed classified.
