Ittihad al Islamiyya

Mark Robert Walker, a Wyoming Technical Institute student was charged with attempting to help terrorists in Somalia. Federal prosecutors accuse Walker of planning to supply Ittihad al Islamiyya -- which wants an Islamic government in Somalia -- with night-vision goggles and bullet-proof vests. Charging documents say he used the computer of a roommate at the Laramie school, also known as WyoTech, to make the arrangements.
