USA v. Ali, Amina Farah
Minneapolis, MN


[DMN] Two indictments were unsealed in the District of Minnesota. The first indictment charged Amina Farah Ali and Hawo Mohamed Hassan with providing funds to al-Shabaab. Prosecutors separately unsealed a third superseding indictment charging 10 men with terrorism offenses for leaving the United States to join al-Shabaab. Seven of these indictments had been previously charged by either indictment or criminal complaint. The remaining three defendants have not been charged before. In October 2011, a federal jury convicted Ali and Hassan of providing material support to al-Shabaab.
