A court in Hamburg, Germany, convicts a Moroccan man of more than 3,000 counts of accessory to murder for his role in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. Mounir el Motassadeq — the first person tried in the attacks — gets the maximum sentence of 15 years in prison. NPR's Bob Edwards talks with NPR's Emily Harris.
