The judge presiding over the terror trial of Osama bin Laden's son-in-law says there's more than enough evidence to convict the former al-Qaida spokesman.

U.S. District Judge Lewis A. Kaplan was responding to calls from the defense to throw out the case.

Noting that it is ultimately up to the jury, Judge Kaplan said he believes the government proved Sulaiman Abu Ghaith both conspired to kill Americans and helped other terrorists.

Prosecutors rested their case yesterday.

Abu Ghaith is the highest level al-Qaida operative to be tried in the U.S. since the September 11th attacks.

The defense case is scheduled to start Monday.
