Saudi student in alleged 'kill list' plot ordered heldA Saudi Arabian student who prosecutors say illegally obtained a gun in the U.S. and told someone he wanted to kill a professor and others was ordered Tuesday held until his trial on a federal gun charge. U.S. Magistrate Judge Laura Fashing ruled Tuesday that Hassan Alqahtani posed a danger and should be kept in federal custody after she heard allegations of domestic violence and threats reportedly made to others. Federal prosecutor George Kraehe told Fashing at a detention hearing in Albuquerque, New Mexico, that his wife’s family reported allegations of domestic violence and the mother of a girlfriend told FBI agents her daughter was scared Alqahtani might attack her.
