Accused Libyan terrorist in second NY court appearance
Abu Anas al-Liby, the suspected terrorist mastermind seized in a US raid on Tripoli, made his second appearance before a federal court in New York Tuesday – this time represented by the lawyer Bernard Kleinman, who declined to say who had retained him. According to sources close to the case, he was retained by the Libyan government. Al Liby has pleaded not guilty to terrorism charges, links with al Qaeda and the 1998 bombings of two US embassies in E. Africa. Kleinman said he needed several months to sort through hundreds of thousands of documents before the case could proceed.
