DETROIT - A federal judge in Detroit has withdrawn from the case of a Palestinian immigrant accused of lying about her role in a fatal terrorist attack, saying he just learned his family had an investment in the Jerusalem supermarket she helped bomb in 1969.


US District Judge Paul Borman recused himself Tuesday from the immigration fraud case against Rasmieh Odeh.

The 67-year-old is also known as Rasmea Yousef and is associate director at the Arab American Action Network in Chicago.


An Israeli military court convicted her for two bombings, one of which killed two men at a SuperSol store. Israel released her in a prisoner swap,


Borman says federal prosecutors only Monday revealed the name of the market, and he says his family had an investment in SuperSol at the time.
