Moussaoui denies he was part of 9/11 attacks

He, however, told the court he knew the attacks were coming some time after August 2001 and bought a radio so he could hear them unfold.

Al-Qaeda conspirator Zacarias Moussaoui testified on Monday he lied to investigators when arrested in August 2001 because he wanted to let the attacks of September 11 go forward.

"Yes, you can say that," Moussaoui said when the prosecution asked if that was why he misled them.

The statement was key to the US government's case that the attacks might have been averted if Moussaoui had been more cooperative following his arrest.

He told the court he knew the attacks were coming some time after August 2001 and bought a radio so he could hear them unfold.
