New date in Iraqi terrorism case

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) - Less than a month after one of two
Iraqi men facing terrorism-related charges in Kentucky pleaded
guilty, the second defendant in the case has been granted more time
to review the charges against him.
U.S. District Judge Thomas Russell moved a pretrial conference
to Feb. 8 for Mohanad Shareef Hammadi, an extension of four weeks.
The 24-year-old Hammadi was arrested in Bowling Green in May
along with Waad Ramadan Alwan, and both were charged with
conspiring to send weapons and money to al-Qaida in Iraq.
The two Iraqi refugees both pleaded not guilty to the charges,
but Alwan did an about-face Dec. 16, pleading guilty to all 23
counts in an indictment against him.
