NEW YORK (AP) — Gov.-elect Andrew Cuomo says the trial of the professed mastermind of the Sept. 11 terror attacks shouldn't be held in New York state.

Attorney General Eric Holder originally proposed trying Khalid Sheikh Mohammed (HAH'-leed shayk moh-HAH'-med) and four alleged accomplices in Manhattan federal court. But the administration backtracked after New Yorkers and elected officials including Mayor Michael Bloomberg objected to the costs and potential security threat.

Holder said this week he would choose a venue for the trial soon.

Cuomo told reporters Friday he knows Holder and has worked with him. He said he would "advocate forcefully" to keep the trial out of New York state altogether.
