    A man convicted of a 1998 terrorist strike on the U.S. Embassy in Tanzania has won the right to sue the federal government over tight restrictions on his visitors and letter-writing at the federal Supermax prison in southern Colorado.

    Khalfan Khamis Mohammed, serving a life sentence at the high-security prison, says the restrictions violate his civil rights.

    Jeff Dorschner, a spokesman for the U.S. Attorney in Denver, did not return a phone call Wednesday seeking a response.

    In a handwritten filing in 2008 in Denver District Court, Mohammed said the special administrative measures that allow restrictions on federal prisoners were "in violation of the First Amendment rights, equal protection rights, cruel and unusual punishment."

    Representing himself, Mohammed also complained that he was barred from watching religious programming on Arabic television, even though Christian prisoners had access to their spiritual leaders. foxnews.com
