NEW YORK (AP) — New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg says he opposes comments made by Egypt's first Islamist and civilian president-elect about releasing a terrorism convict.
Mohammed Morsi told a crowd in Cairo's Tahrir Square he'd work for the release of a blind sheik imprisoned in the U.S. for a plot to blow up New York landmarks.
Bloomberg says he would oppose any effort to "undermine" the sheik serving a life sentence. He says the sheik's conviction was a measure of justice against a man "who tried to kill so many."
The sheik was the spiritual leader of those convicted in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. Supporters have called for him to be repatriated to Egypt on humanitarian grounds.
