NEW YORK - (AP) - A juror has been removed at the trial of four men caught in an FBI terror sting, but deliberations will go on.

A judge dismissed the juror on Tuesday after learning last week that the juror had accidentally seen a document that wasn't in evidence.

After denying a defense motion for a mistrial, the judge ordered deliberations to continue with 11 jurors. Jurors are deliberating for a fourth day.

Prosecutors say James Cromitie hatched a plot with a paid FBI informant to bomb New York City synagogues, and recruited his three co-defendants to fire missiles at a New York military base.

The defense has said the government entrapped their clients.
