A court-appointed psychiatrist has reported that accused U.S. Embassy bomber Ahmed Khalfan Ghailani is competent to stand trial, an attorney for Ghailani said Thursday.

Defense lawyer Michael Bachrach said that Dr. Gregory Saathoff reported to Southern District of New York Judge Lewis A. Kaplan that Ghailani, the first Guantanamo detainee to be moved into the civilian justice system, understands the charges against him and is competent to go on trial in September for the al-Qaida conspiracy that included the 1998 bombings of U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania that killed 224 people.
