Terrorist Mahamud Said Omar
MINNEAPOLIS (KMSP) -
Jurors have delivered a guilty verdict in the trial of a Minnesota man accused of helping send men to Somalia to join the al-Qaida-linked group al-Shabab.
Mahamud Said Omar was convicted on all five terrorism-related counts in the FBI's investigation into what it called a "terror pipeline" dating back to 2007.
Omar has been accused of providing material support during the recruitment of more than 20 Minneapolis-area Somali men who returned to their native land to join al-Shabab.
