Terror suspect complains of prison food

NEW YORK, March 19 (UPI) -- A man accused of lying to FBI agents and trying to join al-Qaida in Pakistan requested better food be served to him in federal prison.

Abdel Hameed Shehadeh, 23, is accused of lying to the FBI, saying a trip to Pakistan was to attend a friend's wedding and enroll in school. Agents said Shehadeh intended to join up with al-Qaida and attack U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan. He faces a possible 25 years in prison if convicted.

In the meantime, he complained to Judge Eric Vitaliano about the prison food.

The judge, the New York Daily News said Tuesday, was unsympathetic.

"I assume he gets whatever any other detainee gets," Vitaliano said, denying the request.
