US judge calls for retrial of 1 count in Texas attack
By ANITA SNOW and JACQUES BILLEAUD
PHOENIX (AP) - A US judge has refused to dismiss the entire case against a Phoenix man convicted of providing guns and training two friends who attacked a Prophet Muhammad cartoon contest outside Dallas. But she says Abdul Malik Abdul Kareem should be be retried on one count of transporting weapons across state lines. The judge ruled FBI surveillance footage that turned up three years after Kareem's convictions doesn't contain evidence requiring a new trial on all counts. The footage was from a camera outside Kareem's apartment, showing his roommates but not him the day the friends left for Texas, the site of the attack.
