Tanzanian man who supplied explosives wants to testify to clear his name

A Tanzanian man who provided explosives for deadly attacks on two U.S. embassies in Africa has said in New York City he wants to testify against the man who bought them to clear his own name and free his heart.

Hussein Abebe spoke Yesterday at a Manhattan federal court hearing staged to decide if he can testify at the trial of the first Guantanamo detainee to be tried in a civilian court.

Abebe says he cried when he first spoke to investigators in 2006 about selling the explosives in 1998 to Ahmed Khalfan Ghailani. The explosives were used to kill 224 people, including 12 Americans.

Abebe says he cried out of anger because he thought he was selling explosives for legitimate purposes, not for killing people.

Ghailani has pleaded not guilty in the Court Room
