PLO terror lawsuit plays out in rural Pa. town; noted author may have to turn over documents
PITTSBURGH (AP) ' The Palestine Liberation Organization says it wants a Christian convert and author of the book "Son of Hamas" to turn over all details of his work trying to stop terrorist attacks.
Mosab Hassan Yousef is a former Israeli spy who says he posed as a terrorist in that job. He has been granted asylum in the United States.
The PLO surprised him with a subpoena last month during a talk at an evangelical church in western Pennsylvania.
The legal wrangling is part of a lawsuit filed against the PLO by victims of seven terror attacks or their relatives. They say the PLO was involved in some of the attacks and is responsible for damages.
The PLO wants Yousef's notes and details of his Israeli spy work. Yousef couldn't be reached for comment.
