A 20-year-old Somali man is being held on federal charges in Minneapolis for trying to join the Islamic State.
The Minneapolis Star Tribune reported that Abdirizak Mohamed Warsame was arrested Wednesday and charged with conspiring to provide material support to the terrorist group.
According to the criminal complaint, Warsame was one of 10 Somali men from the Minneapolis-Saint Paul area who began plotting in April of last year to join the Islamic State in Syria. …
Minnesota has become a hot recruitment spot for terrorists. A congressional report released in late September indicated that Minnesota had produced more would-be Islamic State fighters than any other state.
