ASSOCIATED PRESS PHOTOGRAPHS The gun and hand luggage found on Fazul Abdullah Mohammed's body was seized after the al Qaeda member was killed by Abdi Hassan, a Somali soldier on duty at a security checkpoint. Mr. Hassan said he didn't realize at the time that he was engaged in a shootout with the well-known terrorist, who has had a $5 million U.S. bounty on his head for years.
