Jailed Man Accused of Having Ties to Al Qaeda

While refusing to provide the suspect’s name, age or nationality, the federal authorities confirmed a report in The Star Tribune of Minneapolis that he had been able to corroborate some of the government’s account of the background of Mr. Moussaoui, the only person charged in an American court with conspiring in the September 2001 attacks.
