man phoned US police from his deportation cell to warn of
the planned attack on the World Trade Centre.

but had not been believed.
Spokesman Frank Woesthoff said the man
phoned America "several times", but refused to
give further details.
He said the US Secret Service had not told
the ministry about the calls received from the Langenhagen
prison until after the attacks.
"I cannot say anything about the man
and the ministry does not know the content of the conversations,"
The Hanover daily newspaper Neue Presse
reported the 29-year-old was dismissed as mentally unstable
when he gave the warning of a terrorist attack to occur
The ministry would not reveal when the
calls had been made.
