APNewsBreak: Chicago activist may plead guilty
Detroit • A Chicago activist may plead guilty in Detroit to failing to tell U.S. immigration authorities about her role in a deadly bombing in Israel in 1969.
Rasmieh Yousef Odeh (OH’-duh) is associate director at the Arab American Action Network in Chicago. There is a federal court hearing Wednesday in Detroit.
Odeh’s attorney, William Swor, tells The Associated Press he is "engaging in serious negotiations which could lead to a guilty plea."
Swor says Odeh probably would have to leave the country. She entered the U.S. from Jordan and became a naturalized citizen in 2004.
Odeh was convicted of an attack that killed two people at a Jerusalem market in 1969. She was released after 10 years in a prisoner swap with the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.
