ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) - In the final minutes of doomed United Air Lines Flight 93, on September 11, 2001, hijackers try to shake off passengers trying to take control of the plane as it flies over Pennsylvania. Amid groans and sounds of a struggle, a voice says, “I am injured.” A hijacker asks, “Shall we finish it off?”

Moments later, the plane hurtles out of control to the ground, according to a cockpit recording played for a jury today by federal prosecutors seeking the execution of Zacarias Moussaoui.

The government rested its case just before 11:30 a.m. today after the judge rejected prosecutors’ request to display a running presentation of the names and photos of all of the nearly 3,000 victims of September 11. Prosecutors were instead allowed to show one large poster with the pictures of all but 92 of the victims.
