CASA GRANDE, Ariz., Dec. 12 (UPI) -- An immigrant from Iraq pleaded not guilty to charges he set off a bomb at an Arizona Social Security office.
Abdullatif Ali Aldosary, 47, of Coolidge spoke just one word in a federal court arraignment, responding "yes" to a judge's question to whether that was his real name. Federal prosecutors and his court-appointed defense attorney both said Aldosary has refused to speak with them, KPHO-TV, Phoenix, reported Tuesday.
He is charged with setting off an improvised explosive device outside a government office Nov. 30 in Casa Grande, about 50 miles south of Phoenix. No one was injured in the blast, which shook downtown offices.
Aldosary's attorney entered a plea of not guilty on behalf of his client during the hearing.
