US: Judge orders easing of terms on confinement of terror support suspect

A federal judge has ordered a terrorism-support suspect transferred from solitary confinement to more typical pretrial detention. Mohammed Warsame, a Canadian of Somali descent, was attending college in Minneapolis in 2003 when FBI agents questioned him about time he allegedly spent in two terrorist training camps in Afghanistan three years earlier. He was arrested as a material witness and indicted on charges of conspiring to provide material support to Al-Qaida and of lying to federal agents about traveling to Afghanistan and sending $2,000 to an associate there.
