Somali Refugees Joining ISIS? Another Young Man Arrested in Minnesota

Free Beacon [1] with the latest:

The Minneapolis Star Tribune [2] 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. Three of his fellow co-conspirators have since pleaded guilty to terror-related charges, five will begin trial in May, and one is currently residing in Syria. Warsame was arrested eight months after the other plotters.
