A Minnesota terrorism suspect accused of sending men from Minnesota to their native Somalia to join an al-Qaeda-linked group, al-Shabab, used them as "cannon fodder," a prosecutor said Wednesday.
A Minnesota terrorism suspect accused of sending men from Minnesota to their native Somalia to join an al Qaeda-linked group, al-Shabab, used them as "cannon fodder," a prosecutor said Wednesday.
A Minnesota man accused of helping to recruit and finance U.S. fighters for an overseas terrorist group heads to trial Monday in a case that's expected to show how some young Somali expatriates in Minneapolis were persuaded to risk their lives for insurgents back home.
The men who went to Somalia were younger, computer-literate and better educated than Mr. Omar — perfectly capable of arranging trips on their own, he said.
Mr. Docherty ticked off key evidence for jurors: Mr. Omar's own statements, including when he told the FBI he went to Somalia to join al-Shabab; telephone conversations and testimony from other witnesses who either traveled to Somalia or helped travelers; and business documents, including money transfer and travel records.
