Egyptian Sheik convicted of terrorist plots in New York taken for medical care

NEW YORK - A blind Egyptian sheik serving life for his conviction in a plot to blow up New York landmarks has been moved to a prison medical facility.


The Federal Bureau of Prisons website says Omar Abdel-Rahman has moved from the "Supermax" federal prison in Florence, Colorado, to the Butner Federal Medical Center in North Carolina.


Abdel-Rahman is serving life after his 1995 conviction in a plot to blow up five New York City landmarks and to assassinate Egypt's then-president. (Associated Press)
