CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. (AP) — A Marine who mysteriously disappeared in Iraq 10 years ago is due in military court after an investigation into whether he deserted his unit.

Cpl. Wassef Ali Hassoun is scheduled to appear at Camp Lejeune Thursday in an Article 32 hearing, which is the military equivalent of a grand jury.

Military investigators are looking at whether he deserted his unit in Iraq in 2004. He turned up days later after photos were released of him in a blindfold with a sword above his head. He said he was kidnapped by insurgents, but some in the military doubted his story.

Once back in the U.S., he disappeared again when he failed to return to Camp Lejeune in January of 2005 following a visit with family.
