Prosecutor Walter Hemberger addresses a news conference after the first day of the re-trial against Moroccan Mounir el Motassadeq at the criminal court in the northern German town of Hamburg August 10, 2004. Motassadeq, accused of helping to plot the September 11 attacks on the United States, was the first person convicted in connection with the 2001 attacks and was sentenced to 15 years' jail in 2003 but was freed on appeal in March. His retrial on conspiracy and terrorism charges is already threatened by disagreements with the United States over evidence from a leading al Qaeda figure currently in American custody.
