Federal officials to take second look at reward for Moussaoui tipster

Federal officials to take second look at reward for Moussaoui tipster

Federal officials reportedly are taking another look at an anti-terrorism reward that excluded two Zacarias Moussaoui tipsters.
Last month, the $5 million reward went to Clarence Prevost, a key witness in the trial of the only person convicted so far as a conspirator in the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the United States. Prevost testified that he urged his bosses at the Pan Am International Flight Academy in Minnesota to call the FBI in August 2001.
The award left out two flight instructors at the school, Tim Nelson and Hugh Sims. They were honored by the U.S. Senate in 2005 for alerting the FBI to Moussaoui about a month before the attacks.
Republican Senator Norm Coleman and Democratic Senator Amy Klobuchar say the federal officials agreed at a meeting to look at additional nominations for a reward and to review the facts of the case.
The officials declined to comment as they left the meeting with the senators.
