[JURIST] A new witness will testify in the German retrial of the only person convicted in connection with the 9/11 terrorist attacks. The witness, a restaurant owner identified only as Luetz, claims to have seen defendant Mounir el Motassadeq with three Hamburg-based suicide hijackers, including alleged mastermind Mohamed Atta, at his establishment just four months prior to the attacks.
The testimony contradicts el Motassadeq's claims that he had not seen Atta since May 2000. AP has more. Read a profile of el Motassadeq from CNN.com. Read an earlier Paper Chase report on el Motassadeq's conviction being overturned by the German Supreme Court.
