Moussaoui appeals life sentence over 9/11 charges


Zacarias Moussaoui, the only man to have been charged in the United States in connection with the September 11 attacks, has lodged an appeal against a life jail term.

He is also appealing against the judge’s refusal to let him change his guilty plea on the six conspiracy charges. Moussaoui, who was saved from the death sentence by a tight jury decision, is due to spend the rest of his life in the nation’s most secure prison in the state of Colorado.
