FILE - In this December 12, 1991, file photo Mohammed Rashed, center, convicted of the 1982 PanAm jetliner bombing, listens to his unidentified PLO interpreter, left, during his appeals court hearing in Athens, Greece. Rashed tucked a bomb beneath his jetliner seat cushion, set the timer and disembarked with his wife and child when the flight touched down in Tokyo. The device exploded as the jet continued on to Honolulu, killing a Japanese teenager in an attack that investigators linked to a terrorist organization known for making sophisticated bombs. It would be 20 years before Rashed, one-time apprentice to Abu Ibrahim, currently featured on the FBI list of most wanted terrorists, would admit guilt in an American courtroom. Now, credited for his cooperation against associates, Rashed is about to be freed from federal prison after more than two decades behind bars in Greece and the United States.
