WASHINGTON (AP) — A key senator in the issue of terrorism trials says he doubts the Justice Department get congressional approval for a civilian trial for the alleged Sept. 11 conspirators.

Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina says he believes he has the votes in the Senate to block alleged Sept. 11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed from a civilian court.

Graham says the Sept. 11 suspect known as "KSM" and his alleged conspirators should be tried in military court at the U.S. naval base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

Graham says civilian courts may be the right venue for some terrorism cases, such as low-level al-Qaida operatives and the accused Christmas airliner bomber.

Graham spoke on "Fox News Sunday."
