Lawyer questions handling of terror suspect

By The Associated Press

— The attorney of a Southern California terror suspect is questioning authorities’ handling of his client, who had injuries to his face and head when he was turned over to the FBI by U.S. military officials in Afghanistan.

Attorney Jeffrey Aaron says when Sohiel Omar Kabir arrived in California last week he had a broken facial bone, lacerations and was suffering from memory loss.

Aaron tells the Long Beach Press Telegram it appears the injuries occurred during Kabir’s arrest by U.S. special forces in Kabul, where he was staying with family members.

Kabir, a U.S. citizen, is the suspected ringleader of a plot to kill Americans and bomb military bases overseas. He and three other defendants have pleaded not guilty in federal court.

The three other suspects were arrested in San Bernardino County.
