Terror Indictments in Minnesota

On Monday, a federal judge in Minneapolis plans to unseal documents charging up to eight people with terror-related offenses connected to the recruitment of young Somali Americans by a terrorist group in Somalia. The FBI says these people helped some two dozen Somali Americans from the Twin Cities join a terrorist group in Somalia called al Shabab. Five Minnesotans who joined the group in Somalia have already died in fighting. The FBI, meanwhile, has arrested and charged six other people with terror-related crimes.
