Minnesota men sentenced in Somali terror case

MINNEAPOLIS — Two men who left Minnesota to join the terrorist group Al Shabab in Somalia were sentenced to three years in federal prison Tuesday, getting reduced sentences for their cooperation with the government’s investigation into what has been called one of the largest efforts to recruit US fighters into a foreign terror group.

Abdifatah Yusuf Isse and Salah Osman Ahmed both traveled to Somalia in 2007 and spent about a week in an Al Shabab training camp. They found a way to leave the camp once they learned what Al Shabab was all about.
