Officials to Take Second Look at Reward

Federal officials have agreed to take another look at an anti-terrorism reward that excluded two Zacarias Moussaoui tipsters, two senators said after meeting with the officials last Tuesday. Last month, the $5 million reward went to Clarence Prevost, a key witness in Moussaoui's death penalty trial in 2006. In the case, a jury concluded the Moussaoui's actions furthered the Sept. 11 plot but spared his life, sentencing him to life in prison. Prevost testified that he urged his bosses at the Pan Am International Flight Academy in Minnesota to call the FBI in August 2001. The reward stunned two flight instructors who alerted the FBI to Moussaoui a month before the attacks.
