BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) - A federal judge wants to review sealed evidence against an Iraqi man convicted in a Kentucky terrorism case who hopes to gain access to his complete case file.

U.S. District Judge Thomas B. Russell has ordered attorneys in the case of 27-year-old Mohanad Shareef Hammadi to submit the evidence to him.

Hammadi is seeking access to his file, hoping to withdraw his guilty plea to taking part in a plot to ship thousands of dollars in cash and weapons from Bowling Green, Kentucky, to al-Qaida in Iraq.

A co-defendant, 33-year-old Waad Ramadan Alwan, pleaded guilty in 2010. The pair was working with an FBI informant who squelched their plans.

Alwan is serving a 40-year sentence and Hammadi is serving a life sentence at a maximum security prison in Florence, Colorado.
