A US judge ruled on Tuesday that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed - the United States' highest-profile terror detainee - will not be allowed to testify in a New York courtroom to defend Osama bin Laden's son-in-law.

"I have considered this very carefully. It's much ado about nothing. It's not admissible," Judge Lewis Kaplan told the southern district court in Manhattan.

The trial concerns Suleiman Abu Ghaith, who married bin Laden's daughter Fatima and now faces charges of conspiracy to kill US citizens, conspiracy to support terrorists and supporting terrorists.
