The Pentagon announces the first charges against prisoners detained at the U.S. military base in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Two men, from Yemen and Sudan, are accused of conspiracy to commit war crimes. They will now face a military tribunal — the first to be convened since World War II. If convicted, the men could face life in prison. NPR's Jackie Northam reports.
