SAN DIEGO – A Southern California man has been indicted on charges of supporting a foreign terrorist organization in the government's latest strike targeting Somalia's al-Shabaab.
The federal indictment unsealed Friday says 35-year-old Ahmed Nasir Taalil Mohamud of Anaheim worked with three others who already have been charged in San Diego.
The indictment says Mohamud was told in December 2007 that money was needed for "the young men who are firing the bullets." In July 2008, he allegedly discussed raising money for al-Shabaab under the pretense of helping the poor.
Al-Shabab is an al-Qaida-linked militia trying to overthrow Somalia's transitional government.
