Lawyer: Alleged assault prompted by Prophet Muhammad cartoon
by Michael Tarm
A 21-year-old suburban Chicago man awaiting trial on terrorism charges faced new allegations Tuesday that he attacked a fellow inmate who his attorney says taunted him with a cartoon drawing of the Prophet Muhammad.
At a separate status hearing in his terrorism case Tuesday, Adel Daoud told a judge he believes there is an elaborate conspiracy against him that includes plans for a trial where "the jurors are Freemasons hired by the judge."
Daoud, a U.S citizen, faces terrorism charges for allegedly trying to set off a bomb outside a downtown Chicago bar in 2012; the device was fake and part of an FBI sting.
