AMARILLO (AP) - Jurors are deliberating in the case of a Saudi man accused of gathering chemicals and other materials in his Texas apartment to try to build a bomb.

Khalid Ali-M Aldawsari is charged with attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction. Closing arguments in the case were Wednesday morning.

Aldawsari attorney Dan Cogdell again argued that his client never came close to carrying out an attack.

In order to convict Aldawsari, jurors must decide that he took a “substantial step” toward an attack.

Cogdell says prosecutors are playing “the game of ‘Fear Factor’ ” with the jury.

Prosecutor Jeffrey Haag says Aldawsari was planning an attack for a long time. Authorities say they found bomb-making materials and writings in which Aldawsari said he wanted to carry out an attack.
