Three college football players accused in an attack on Palestinian students have apologized, and the victims' lawyer says they will drop their complaint once the fourth player says he is sorry. "They need to give us their apologies, and then we're going to go over to the district attorney's office and get the (assault) charges against them dismissed," said attorney Amiel Rossabi, who represents Guilford College students Faris Khader and Osama Sabbah. "The boys settled it among themselves," Rossabi said Monday. Khader, Sabbah and Omar Awartani, a student from North Carolina State, told police they were beaten and kicked by assailants who used ethnic slurs and called them "terrorists" during a campus fight on January 20.
