NEW YORK - Military installations in New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts and Maryland are welcoming families of 9/11 victims this week to watch pretrial hearings in Cuba for five men charged in the terrorist attacks.

Seven family members were viewing the Guantanamo proceedings Monday via closed-circuit television at Fort Hamilton, a U.S. Army base in Brooklyn.

In addition to 9/11 families and first responders, the general public can watch the proceedings at Fort Meade, in Maryland.

The suspects include the self-professed mastermind of the Sept. 11 attacks.

The men are expected to appear at the hearings, which are scheduled through Friday.

The actual military tribunal will not start till sometime next year.
