Trinidad Express "One of four men accused of plotting to kill thousands and cause an economic catastrophe by blowing up John F Kennedy International Airport pleaded guilty to a lesser charge yesterday.

Abdel Nur, of Guyana, who was extradited to the United States from Guyana to face the charges, appeared before US District Judge Dora Irizarry in New York with a grizzled beard and white shirt provided to him by the government.

He spoke in halting English. He admitted that he provided material support to terrorists, a charge that was not in the original indictment against him. The lesser charge spares him a possible life sentence. Instead, he now faces up to 15 years in prison."
