Sept. 11 Terror Suspect Wants to Study in Germany

Following a German court's decision to release him from prison, suspected Islamic fundamentalist Mounir el Motassadeq has sued for the right to study in Hamburg. Motassadeq, 30, a former electronics student at the Technical University of Hamburg-Harburg was sentenced to more than 15 years in prison in February 2003 after a court found him guilty of helping the Hamburg cell that planned the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. The Moroccan native was granted a limited release from prison on April 7, 2004, a short while after a high German court ruled he was eligible for a retrial. The university denied his application to continue his studies after he left jail in April. They said they doubted his "peaceful disposition."
