Feds: 11th Somali man in Minn. charged with ISIS support
WASHINGTON — Federal prosecutors have brought terrorism charges against an 11th man from the Minneapolis Somali community, alleging that the 20-year-old suspect used proceeds from a legal settlement related to the city’s deadly 2007 bridge collapse to ultimately finance his travel to Syria two years ago.
Mohamed Amiin Ali Roble, still believed to be fighting for the Islamic State in Syria, was identified in interviews with other alleged conspirators who have been cooperating with federal investigators.
According to court documents, Roble began using at least part of a $91,654 settlement from a lawsuit filed in the aftermath of the 2007 Minneapolis bridge collapse, which left 13 dead and 145 injured, to finance his 2014 travel to Istanbul. – READ MORE
