The convicted terrorist who planned and carried out the 1993 World Trade Center bombing – who has been in isolation for more than a decade – has filed a lawsuit to end his solitary confinement.
Ramzi Yousef, 45, has been imprisoned since his capture in Pakistan in 1995 – two years after he killed six people and injured 1,000 others after detonating explosives beneath the North Tower.
