Miami (AP) A federal judge in Miami has declared another mistrial against six men accused of plotting to spark an anti-government war by toppling Chicago's sears tower and bombing FBI offices.

U.S. District Judge Joan Lenard ordered a mistrial when jurors reported after 13 days of deliberation they were hopelessly deadlocked in the case of the so-called “Liberty City Seven.”

The first trial ended in a mistrial in December because of a hung jury for the same six defendants and the acquittal of a seventh.

It is unclear what the prosecution's next step will be.
