NEW YORK -- Attorney General Eric Holder has made an unannounced visit to a Manhattan courthouse to inspect security for the upcoming trial of professed Sept. 11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed.

Holder inspected the federal jail and nearby courthouse Wednesday where Mohammed and four others are due to stand trial on charges they plotted the nation's worst terrorist attack.

The five suspects have been held for years at the military base in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Holder announced last month they would be tried as civilians, blocks from the World Trade Center site.

A Holder spokesman said the attorney general also met with New York Police Commissioner Ray Kelly and Joseph Guccione, head of the U.S. Marshals Service that provides security for the courthouse.

A trial date has not yet been set.
