(NEW YORK) — A series of pre-trial hearings in the case of accused 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed scheduled for later this month have reportedly been cancelled.

According to an email from the military commission at Guantanamo Bay to the families of 9/11 victims, the hearings scheduled to run from August 24 to September 4 were cancelled. The email only cited unresolved issues pertaining to a certain motion.

The next scheduled hearings are set to take place from October 19-30.

With the 14th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks just under a month away, it remains unclear when Mohammed and his co-defendants will reach trial.
