Associated Press

A Palestinian who was held as a suspect in the World Trade Center blast was charged Thursday with conspiracy to destroy the building.

The federal complaint says that Ahmad Mohammad Ajaj entered the United States illegally on Sept. 1, 1992, with manuals on how to make bombs and that he and five co-conspirators "unlawfully . . . did damage and destroy" the trade center.
