Six Minnesota men are charged in a plot to travel to Syria in order to support ISIS. The men are charged with conspiracy and attempting to provide materials to support a foreign terror group. They are associated with three other Minnesota men recently charged with similar crimes. Federal prosecutors state ISIS and other terror organizations actively recruit from the Somali community in Minnesota, the largest such community in the United States.
We have a terror recruiting problem in Minnesota.
The six men are Zacharia Yusuf Abdurahman, 19; Abdurahman Yasin Daud, 21; Adnan Abdihamid Farah, 19; Mohamed Abdihamid Farah, 21; Hanad Mustafe Musse, 19; and Guled Ali Omar, 20.
What this case shows is that the person radicalizing your son, your brother, your best friend may not be a stranger. It may be their best friend right here in town.
