No bail for man accused of trying to storm cockpit

May 10, 2011 (SAN FRANCISCO)

Rageh al-Murisi made his first court appearance Tuesday since the incident Sunday night.

Prosecutors told the judge that al-Murisi repeatedly yelled "Allah Akbar," which is Arabic for "God is great," as he ran toward the cockpit.

Al-Murisi is in the United States legally but holds a passport from Yemen.

Flight attendants, two retired law enforcement officials and an off-duty pilot helped subdue him.

Al-Murisi is charged with interfering with a flight crew.
