Florence, Colo. (AP) -- A convicted terrorist from Tanzania says
his free speech rights are being violated at the federal prison in
Florence. Khalfan Khamis Mohammed says prison officials should not
be able to put limits on the people with whom he can speak or
write. Mohammed is serving a life sentence after he was convicted
for his involvement in the 1998 U.S. Embassy bombing in Tanzania. The Denver Post reports a federal judge ruled that national security concerns are not enough to toss out Mohammed's complaints about the restrictions.
