Hasan Questions Potential Panel Members

(KCEN) -- Individual questioning is underway in panel selection for the accused Fort Hood shooter.

Of the 20 potential panel members that were brought in yesterday, 14 remain and 9 are being called back today for questioning.

Nidal Hasan asked a panel member, "The fact that I believe the Koran does justify killing people, would that affect your ability to be impartial?"

One of the potential military jurors is a 9/11 survivor from the Pentagon.

This process of questioning will continue for about a month as the 120 potential military jurors are brought to Fort Hood in groups of 20.

The court martial will being no earlier than August 6.
