LAW & ORDER --(10:00PM-11:00PM) --(TV-14)
DETECTIVES TRACE DRUG MASSACRE TO HEROIN-DEALING AFGHAN WARLORD WHO CLAIMS DIPLOMATIC IMMUNITY -- In the bloody wake of a massacre of heroin dealers, Detectives Fontana (Dennis Farina) and Green (Jesse L. Martin) track through a list of international criminals until they target their primary suspect -- a drug-dealing Afghan warlord (as Khaleel, guest star Christopher Maher) who's aided U.S. forces in Afghanistan and claims diplomatic immunity. But A.D.A.s McCoy (Sam Waterston) and Southerlyn (Elisabeth Rohm) fearlessly prosecute despite State Department pressure and a defense lawyer who claims his Afghan client was forced to push drugs in order to maintain his cover -- and ultimately continue to aid American military efforts. S. Epatha Merkerson and Fred Dalton Thompson also star.
