German prosecutors at the trial of Abdelghani Mzoudi, accused of conspiring with the Sept. 11 terrorists in Hamburg, call a surprise witness in hopes of turning their case around. In December, evidence surfaced suggesting Mzoudi did not know of the hijackers' plans. But now, a former agent of the Iranian Intelligence Service testifies Mzoudi was active in plotting the attacks.
