U.S. Expels Diplomat

UNITED NATIONS () -- The United States has ordered the expulsion of a Sudanese diplomat suspected of aiding terrorists who plotted to blow up the UN and assassinate Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak.

The expulsion order was issued Tuesday against Ahmed Yousif Mohamed, a second secretary at the Sudanese mission to the UN.

U.S. Mission spokesman James Rubin said Mohamed had "been identified as being involved in terrorist and espionage activities including involvement in connection with the [1993] plot to bomb the United Nations."
