GUANTANAMO BAY NAVAL BASE, Cuba -- Five Guantanamo Bay prisoners accused of helping orchestrate the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks are due back in court as the U.S. government tries to push the long-stalled case forward.

The men are to face a judge Monday for the start of five days of pretrial hearings. A judge is considering a long list of procedural issues that include whether the defense can have access to confidential records of the International Committee of the Red Cross.

The men were last in court in February. That hearing was dominated by defense concerns that their private conversations with the accused were being monitored. The government denied any monitoring.

The defendants include self-proclaimed terrorist mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. The government has asked for a trial in late 2014, though it's likely to be later.
