Islamic cleric testifies he wanted to aid hostages

Published: 05.13.14, 00:46 / Israel News

A former London imam told a jury Monday that he tried to help hostages in Yemen in 1998 by urging their captors to let them telephone embassies and their families.


Mustafa Kamel Mustafa testified for a third day in Manhattan federal court. He has pleaded not guilty to charges that he conspired to support terrorism by helping the hostage takers, by later trying to create a training camp in Oregon and by arranging for men to attend al-Qaeda training camps in Afghanistan. If convicted, he would likely face life in prison. (AP)
