DELETES REFERENCE TO GADEIR ABBAS ASSOCIATION TO THE COUNCIL ON AMERICAN-ISLAMIC RELATIONS - FILE - In this Aug. 16, 2013, file photo, Gulet Mohamed, left, leaves the federal court in Alexandria, Va. with his attorney, Gadeir Abbas, after a hearing challenging his placement on the government's no fly list. The FBI on Jan. 29, 2015, added Liban Haji Mohamed, a former taxi driver from northern Virginia to its list of most wanted terrorists, saying he was a recruiter for the al-Shabab terror group in Somalia. An arrest warrant, originally issued in February, was unsealed in U.S. District Court in Alexandria for Liban Haji Mohamed, 29, a naturalized U.S. citizen born in Somalia. The family denies that Mohamed committed any wrongdoing and suspects he went into hiding to avoid constant harassment from the FBI. "Al-Shabab has killed Liban’s uncle and imprisoned his cousins," said Abbas, who for years has represented Mohamed’s brother in a civil-rights suit against the government. "His family believes the allegations have no basis in fact." (AP Photo/Matthew Barakat, File)

FILE - In this Nov. 15, 2012, file photo, Pedro Hernandez, right, appears in Manhattan criminal court with his attorney, Harvey Fishbein, in New York. Hernandez confessed in 2012 to killing the long-missing New York City boy, Etan Patz but Hernandez’s defense maintains his confessions are the false imaginings of a man who has an IQ in the lowest 2 percent of the population and has problems discerning reality from fiction. Fishbein - who has handled other murder cases involving psychiatric issues - and the prosecution differ on the extent and implications of Hernandez’s mental problems. Opening statements in Hernandez's trial are set for Friday, Jan. 30, 2015. (AP Photo/Louis Lanzano, Pool, File)

Boxes of single-doses vials of the measles-mumps-rubella virus vaccine live, or MMR vaccine and ProQuad vaccine are kept frozen inside a freezer at the practice of Dr. Charles Goodman in Northridge, Calif., Thursday, Jan. 29, 2015.  Some doctors are adamant about not accepting patients who don't believe in vaccinations, with some saying they don't want to be responsible for someone's death from an illness that was preventable. Others warn that refusing treatment to such people will just send them into the arms of quacks. (AP Photo/Damian Dovarganes)

FILE - This file image taken from an online video purportedly released by the Islamic State group's al-Furqan media arm on Tuesday, Jan. 20, 2015, but lacks their logo, purports to show the group threatening to kill two Japanese hostages that the militants identify as Kenji Goto, left, and Haruna Yukawa, right, unless a $200 million ransom is paid within 72 hours. Far from the high-tech, slickly edited videos involving beheaded Western hostages through which the group impressed supporters and terrorized opponents, recent messages purporting to be from Japanese hostage Kenji Goto have been through digitized, audio dispatches featuring either still photos or text. Experts who examined this video said it was more likely filmed in an indoor studio with a false backdrop. (AP Photo, File)
