SEATTLE - The Algerian man who plotted to blow up Los Angeles International Airport at the height of millennium celebrations five years ago was sentenced to 22 years in prison yesterday. Ahmed Ressam, 38, flashed a brief grin as he was sentenced to the midrange of what attorneys had requested. Defense lawyers had asked for 12 1/2 years; prosecutors wanted 35 years. He will get credit for the five years he has spent in custody. Ressam, who had for a period cooperated with authorities in tracking down other terrorists, said nothing in court, but federal public defender Thomas Hillier said his client had given U.S. District Judge John Coughenour a note before the sentencing.

LOS ANGELES - He speaks only an obscure tribal dialect found in a corner of Vietnam's Pleiku district. So for nearly a month, a homesick Vietnamese refugee stranded at Los Angeles International Airport slept on airport benches and spent his days silently dreaming of getting out of Los Angeles. Then the man yearning to see relatives in one of Vietnam's Montagnard villages was embraced by an unexpected "family" - airport police, airline employees and others who work at Tom Bradley International Terminal and offered him food and shelter.

LOS ANGELES -- The air traffic controller involved in the Los Angeles runway disaster last February had been relieved of duty as a military controller 14 years ago and urged to seek psychiatric help after her parents died in a light plane crash, federal reports disclosed yesterday.In addition, the reports note that during her most recent performance evaluation, the controller lost track of a plane taxiing onto a runway on which another plane was about to land -- an incident that sounds similar to the one that led to the collision Feb. 1 of a USAir jetliner and a commuter plane at Los Angeles International Airport.
