    A German appeals court has found a Moroccan, Mounir al-Motassadek, guilty of being an accessory to murder in the 11 September 2001 attacks on the USA. The Karlsruhe court sent the case back to a lower court for sentencing. In August 2005, a Hamburg court jailed Motassadek for seven years, following a year-long retrial. But the Karlsruhe judge on Thursday overturned the Hamburg court's decision to acquit Motassadek, 32, on thousands of counts of accessory to murder. He now faces up to 15 years in jail. Motassadek was originally jailed for 15 years in 2003, convicted of helping the 11...

    Moroccan man who was friends with three of the 9/11 suicide hijackers has been found guilty in Germany of belonging to a terrorist organisation.

Motassadek was originally convicted of those charges in 2003 but the verdict was overturned and a retrial ordered. After the original conviction was quashed by Germany's Supreme Court last year, the retrial heard new evidence - excerpts of interviews with key al-Qaeda suspects...

But the presiding judge said the evidence against him had not been sufficient for a conviction. "The fight against terrorism cannot be a wild, unjust war," Klaus Tolksdorf said.
