Hearing Canceled For Somali Held On Terror Charges

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A hearing has been canceled for a Somali man who’s been in custody for more than two years on terror charges.

Kamal Said Hassan had wanted to ask a federal judge Monday to release him while he waits to be sentenced. But his hearing was postponed due to a scheduling conflict. A new date has not been set.

Hassan pleaded guilty to providing material support to a foreign terrorist organization and other charges.

He has admitted he left Minneapolis for Somalia in 2007 and stayed at a training camp for al-Shabab. He has said he continued following the terror group’ orders after he left camp. He’s one of roughly 20 men believed to have traveled from Minneapolis to fight for the group, but the only one in custody pending sentencing.

    The Somali community in Minnesota is only here for the handouts and for a base to continue their anti-american agenda. They are not here to work as even after being here for years and years they have 90% + unemployment.

    1. Joey says:

      Is that number coming out of a respectable report? Or the Ali Daily?

      1. Ali says:

        90% unemployment came from an artical by WCCO a few months ago… not my number. The truth hurts…
