The U.S. government wants to keep some evidence secret from the public in the case of a man charged with trying to join an Al-Qaeda-linked group fighting in Syria's civil war.At a hearing Friday, a U.S. District judge will weigh the government's concerns against the defendant's right to a fair trial. The FBI says it has evidence collected by secret informants who corresponded online with Basit Sheikh showing that he expressed a desire to join and fight with Jabhat al-Nusra, or the Nusra Front, which the U.S. government has designated as a terrorist group.
