Federal prosecutors showed a judge a videotape of what they say were two men placing what they believed were bombs under a bridge.
The judge is considering whether to release five suspects on bond ahead of their trial on charges alleging they plotted to bomb the bridge in northeast Ohio.
The Plain Dealer in Cleveland reports that prosecutors showed about 10 minutes of the videotape during
Wednesday's detention hearing in Akron until the judge said it was too difficult to understand clearly.
The government has described the men as self-proclaimed anarchists and oppose their release.
The five have pleaded not guilty.
hey were arrested in early May and accused of trying to detonate what was actually a fake explosive provided by someone working with the FBI.
