Osama bin Laden’s son-in-law pleads not guilty

NEW YORK — Sulaiman Abu Ghaith, a son-in-law of Osama bin Laden who once served as a spokesman for Al Qaeda, pleaded not guilty at his arraignment Friday morning in US District Court in Manhattan, where he was charged with conspiring to kill Americans.

John P. Cronan, an assistant US attorney, said in court Abu Ghaith had spoken at length with US law enforcement officials after his arrest by federal authorities on Feb. 28. Cronan cited a 22-page document detailing his statements but did not characterize them. The statements were not made public.
