  • Minnesota Man Pleads Guilty To Trying To Join ISIS As Part Of Homegrown Terrorist Ring

    A Minnesota man pleaded guilty Friday to attempting to provide material support to ISIS. He is the third person in a larger ring of Minnesota ISIS supporters to plead guilty after the FBI busted the ring earlier this year.

    Zacharia Abdurahman pleaded guilty before Senior U.S. District Judge Michael Davis to attempting to carry out a plot with his co-conspirators to get false passports, travel to Mexico, and then fly overseas to join ISIS.

    What Abdurahman didn’t know is that he was working with a federal law enforcement source. Abdurahman paid the source $100 to get a fake passport as part of the plan, further sealing his legal fate.

    “Zacharia Abdurahman is the third co-conspirator to plead guilty and admit in detail his longstanding efforts to join ISIL,” U.S. Attorney Andrew Luger said in a statement.  “Despite being stopped by federal agents on his first attempt, Abdurahman continued to seek ways to join this terrorist group. We hope that Abdurahman’s guilty plea today, and those of Hanad Musse and Abdullahi Yusuf before him, deter others from planning to join ISIL.”

    Minnesota has been a hotbed for ISIS radicalization and is the target of a White House program to prevent radicalization.
