Moussaoui asks judge to let 3 more testify

ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) — Zacarias Moussaoui has asked a federal judge to allow three more terror suspects now in custody to testify at his trial on charges of conspiring to aid the Sept. 11 hijackers.

According to court records unsealed Friday, Moussaoui asked U.S. District Judge Leonie Brinkema to order the government to produce Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, the suspected mastermind of the Sept. 11 attacks, Mustafa al-Hisawi, a suspected financier of the attacks, and Abu Zubaydah, a suspected coordinator of al-Qaida terrorist activities.

Mohammed and al-Hisawi were captured March 1 in Pakistan. Zubaydah had been captured there a year earlier.

Moussaoui's motions seeking testimony from the three were filed beginning last September. Brinkema unsealed them along with a previously disclosed request from Moussaoui for testimony from Ramzi Binalshibh, alleged to have helped plan the Sept. 11 attacks.
