Somalia terror suspect Mohamed Ibrahim Ahmed to be tried in New York(Read article summary)
Somalia terror suspect Mohamed Ibrahim Ahmed learned how to make bombs in Somalia from the Islamist militant group Al Shabab, say US prosecutors. He has been brought to New York to face charges.
Mr. Ahmed, who was sent to New York on Saturday after being arrested in the West African country of Nigeria, is charged with providing and conspiring to provide material support to the militant Somali group, Al Shabab, which the State Department has listed as a terrorist group.
He's also charged with receiving and conspiring to receive military-type "jihad training" from Al Shabab, which has recently sworn allegiance to Al Qaeda.
