MAY 8, 2006 - Posted at 3:15 p.m. CST

WASHINGTON (AP) - Zacarias Moussaoui has said he lied on the stand about being involved in 9-11, and he has asked to withdraw his guilty plea.

The statement appears in a motion filed in federal court outside Washington by his attorneys.

Massaoui last week was sentenced to life in prison, after a jury rejected the government's appeal to sentence him to death.
