SAN FRANCISCO — A federal judge has denied bail for a Yemen native accused of trying to barge into the cockpit of a San Francisco-bound American Airlines flight.

Prosecutors argued in court today that Rageh Al-Murisi shouldn’t get bail because he’s a danger to society.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Elise Becker says Al-Murisi yelled “God is great” in Arabic before pushing toward the cockpit. She notes the same phrase was uttered by the hijackers of Flight 93 as they took over the plane that eventually went down in Shanksville, Pa., on Sept. 11, 2001.

Becker also says Al-Murisi carried no luggage during Sunday’s flight from Chicago and didn’t tell relatives that he was coming.

Al-Murisi faces one count of interfering with a flight crew. He acknowledged through an Arabic interpreter that he understood the charge.
