WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- Federal prosecutors are pressing for limits on who can see formerly classified information that has been declassified to prosecute a Wichita man accused of plotting a suicide bombing at Mid-Continent Airport.

A court filing Tuesday seeks a hearing on the government's request for restrictions on materials provided to lawyers for 58-year-old avionics technician Terry Loewen. Prosecutors also want the case designated as "complex," which would ease concerns about a speedy trial.

Loewen was arrested last month following an undercover operation. He has pleaded not guilty to charges including attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction and attempted material support to al-Qaida.

Prosecutors say the defense has mistakenly asserted in opposing the requested restrictions that most of the evidence will consist of Loewen's conversations with undercover agents.
