Amerikanske myndigheter siktet torsdag 14 mennesker for å ha stilt penger, tjenester og personell til disposisjon for den somaliske gruppa al Shabaab. Halvparten av dem var amerikanske statsborgere. Det vekker sterk bekymring.
Thursday, Attorney General Eric Holder announced that the government was charging 14 people—at least half of whom are American citizens—with being part of a “deadly pipeline” that funneled money and fighters to al-Shabab.
Indictments were unsealed in Minneapolis, San Diego, and Mobile, Alabama, reflecting what the attorney general described as a disturbingly broad effort to recruit U.S. residents as terrorists. Two of the suspects, both women, were arrested for allegedly raising money through door-to-door solicitations and teleconferences “to support violent jihad in Somalia.”.
