MN Man Possibly Behind Recruiting Somali Terrorists

WCCO) An investigation into terrorism recruiting among young Somalis leads to Minnesota. Shirwa Ahmed of Minneapolis is believed to have killed himself in a suicide bombing in Somalia last month. However, investigators fear he may have left a deadly legacy of recruiting other young Somalis to leave Minnesota and join terrorist groups in Somalia.

His high school pictures show a clean cut young man and neighbors at his Minneapolis apartment say lately 26-year-old Shirwa Ahmed had a thick beard.

“He doesn’t talk to people,” one neighbor said.

The neighbor added he is stunned that Shirwa Ahmed was apparently killed after returning to Somalia and blowing himself up in a suicide attack. No one answered the door at Ahmed’s family’s apartment. Neighbors say the FBI has been interviewing family and friends.  More from WCCO here
