Federal prosecutors said an American accused of laundering money to terrorist groups was not tortured by Israeli police. Muhammed Salah, who has been accused in Chicago of laundering millions of dollars to Hamas, claimed last month he was threatened and abused by police in Israel before confessing in 1993 and serving more than four years in prison on similar charges. Assistant U.S. Attorney Joseph Ferguson said Salah did not show signs of abuse and did not claim he was tortured at the time.
