FBI: Computer Seized Had 9-11 Target Pics

Photographs in a computer used by a Saudi student arrested for alleged visa violations include shots of the World Trade Center before and after the 2001 terrorism attacks, an FBI agent testified Tuesday. A detention hearing was to continue Wednesday in federal court to determine if Sami Omar Al-Hussayen should be released. The University of Idaho student was arrested last month and has pleaded innocent to an 11-count federal indictment accusing him of visa fraud and making false statements on student visa applications to enter the country. Al-Hussayen, 34, is a doctoral student studying computer security, and FBI agent Michael Gneckow said that gave him access to some classified information. Gneckow said a computer regularly used by Al-Hussayen was seized at a university engineering laboratory.
