NEW YORK (AP) _ A college student from Jordan was charged today with lying to a grand jury about his association with two men suspected of hijacking the plane that crashed into the Pentagon last month.

The charges against Osama Awadallah were brought in U.S. District Court in Manhattan. Awadallah, who was studying English as a second language at Grossmont College in La Mesa, Calif., was charged with two counts of making false statements for allegedly falsely describing his association with suspected hijackers Nawaf Al-Hazmi and Khalid Al-Mihdhar.
