BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) - Federal prosecutors in Kentucky are opposing a move by an Iraqi man convicted in a Kentucky terrorism case to gain access to his complete case file.

U.S. Attorney David Hale filed a motion Monday saying 26-year-old Mohanad Shareef Hammadi should not be allowed to have the sensitive information.

Hammadi is seeking access to his file with designs on trying 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 are serving a life sentence at a maximum security prison in Florence, Colorado.
