NEW YORK, NY, United States (UPI) -- The head of the City University 
of New York says the City College must remove the names of two 
fugitives from a student clubroom.

Chancellor Matthew Goldstein ordered the president of City College to 
remove an unauthorized sign calling the room the 'Guillermo 
Morales/Assata Shakur Community and Student Center,' the New Daily 
News reported.

Shakur, previously known as Joanne Chesimard, was convicted in the 
1973 murder of New Jersey State Trooper Werner Foerster. The Daily 
News said Morales built bombs for a Puerto Rican terrorist group in New York.

Shakur and Morales escaped from custody and are federal fugitives 
living in Cuba, the newspaper said.

The sign has been above the student center since 1989, but it escaped 
the notice of officials until a student complained to the Daily News.

Goldstein said the sign was never approved by school trustees.
