    A 25-year-old man has been sentenced to two years and six months in prison by Denmark’s High Court for making and possessing a bomb. Somalian citizen Libaan Ahmed Warsame has also been sentenced with conditional deportation from Denmark. He was found guilty of making and storing a bomb in the basement of an apartment building on the Peter Fabers Vej residential street in Aarhus. The device was discovered by a resident in the building in October 2016, and the area was closed off for several areas as armed police evacuated the block and arrested Warsame. A bomb disposal unit was...

    The death of an Islamic teen in December, which fueled wide speculation about an anti-Muslim attack, was the result of a fall that followed the teen’s first use of marijuana, according to a report released Tuesday by Seattle police. Hamza Warsame’s death Dec. 5 drew national attention and sparked widespread speculation that he might have been the victim of an anti-Muslim hate crime, until it was ruled an accident a month later. A report released Tuesday by Seattle police reveals details of the investigation that bolster the conclusion made by the King County Medical Examiner’s Office.

A police doctor who entered the mall after the attack said these reports “are not allegations. Those are f***ing truths.”</p>

    Obama faces criticism from all sides for terrorism suspect’s offshore interrogation, civilian trialPAUL KORING WASHINGTON— Globe and Mail Update Last updated Thursday, Jul. 07, 2011 7:56PM EDT After holding a Somali terrorism suspect for two months on a U.S. warship, the Obama administration secretly flew him to New York for trial in a civilian court, leaving both rights groups and Congress infuriated. The clandestine imprisonment at sea echoed Bush-era – and widely condemned – efforts to deny detainees constitutional protections while interrogating them offshore. Meanwhile, opting to surreptitiously bring the Somali to a U.S. federal court not far from where...

    Republicans are blasting the Obama administration for detaining a Somali terror suspect for two months aboard a U.S. warship before flying him to New York over the July Fourth holiday to face charges in a civilian trial. Ahmed Abdulkadir Warsame, who has ties to the Al Qaeda-linked group al-Shabaab, was captured April 19 in the Horn of Africa region, possibly in Yemen. At his arraignment in New York Tuesday, he pleaded not guilty to the nine charges he's been indicted on by a federal grand jury, including providing material support to a terrorist organization. "The Obama administration won't detain terrorists...

    WASHINGTON—A 35-year-old Minneapolis man was sentenced today in federal court on one count of conspiring to provide material support and resources to al Qaeda. David Kris, Assistant Attorney General for National Security, and Frank J. Magill, U.S. Attorney for the District of Minnesota announced that on July 9 in Minneapolis, U.S. District Court Judge John Tunheim sentenced Mohammed Abdullah Warsame to 92 months in prison and three years of supervised release.

    Minneapolis terrorism suspect Mohammed Abdullah Warsame was sentenced today to seven and a half years for conspiring to aid Al-Qaida, with credit for the years he has already spent in prison. In U.S. District Court in Minneapolis, Judge John Tunheim gave Warsame credit for his five-and-a-half years behind bars and gave him additional credit for "good time," because he has been kept in solitary confinement. That means he will probably be released and deported in about 10 months. Warsame, 35, served one of the longest pretrial detentions for a terrorism-related case since the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. He pleaded...

    Attorneys for a Minneapolis man held in solitary confinement on terror charges for more than five years are asking he be released while he awaits trial, saying Mohammed Warsame's pretrial incarceration has gone on so long it has become punitive. After U.S. District Court Judge John Tunheim said he would take the request under advisement, Warsame stood up in court and said, "This is unfair, sir. I've been here a long time." Warsame, a Canadian of Somali descent, is charged with conspiracy to provide material support and resources to al-Qaida and with one count of providing such support. He's also...

    A federal judge in New York has ordered a Lebanese national transferred to Minneapolis to face two counts of making false statements to federal investigators. The U.S. attorney's office in Minneapolis says Mohamad Kamal Elzahabi is charged with lying about his role in sending radio and communications equipment to Pakistan and elsewhere. He's also accused of lying about his role in helping another person illegally obtain a Massachusetts driver's license. That person was later convicted in Jordan in a bombing plot. The charges revealed Friday deal only with accusations of lying — not with the underlying crimes Elzahabi allegedly lied...

    A Somalian woman who entered the United States about 18 months ago as a refugee was charged yesterday in Quincy District Court with trying to stab her boyfriend to death as he drove a tractor-trailer along Route 128 south in Randolph Thursday night. The victim, Mustafa Warsame, 38, brought the truck to a stop in the breakdown lane, hitting the guardrail. He staggered out and told a witness, "My girlfriend stabbed me," before collapsing on the pavement. A prosecutor said the defendant, Deka Artan, 21, ran from the scene with her 2-year-old daughter, but stopped a short distance later.

    A suspected terrorist, arrested in Minneapolis and held in prison for nearly 3 and a half years without a trial, is asking to be released. Mohammed Warsame is charged with federal crimes of violence and supplying support to Al Qaida. Supporters in the Muslim community packed the federal courthouse in Minneapolis Tuesday to express their concern for Mohammed Warsame. "The length of this detention, without his day in court, is causing a serious problem," said Somali Justice Center Director Omar Jamal. Warsame's attorney said it's the longest time in U.S. history someone has been incarcerated pretrial. "He's been incredibly resilient,"...

    Three years after Mohammed Warsame was arrested in Minneapolis and jailed for alleged ties to Al-Qaida and lying to FBI agents, a defense attorney is calling the case a "travesty" and has filed a brief in U.S. District Court demanding charges be dismissed because of delays in the case. "The wheels of justice have not ground slowly in this case," wrote Chicago lawyer David C. Thomas in the brief filed Wednesday. "Instead they have ground to a halt." Warsame, 33, a Canadian of Somali descent, remains among a handful of people arrested in Minnesota since 2001 in connection with terrorism...

    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A federal grand jury added four new charges against a man authorities say fought with the Taliban, shared a meal with Osama bin Laden and wired money to people he met in Afghan training camps. Mohammed Warsame, 31, was charged last year with conspiracy to provide material support to al-Qaida. Wednesday's new indictment added a count of providing material support to the terrorist group and three counts of making false statements to the FBI. Warsame has been held without bail since his 2003 arrest. An arraignment date on the new charges had not been set, said Karen...

U.S. Attempt to Turn Al Qaeda Suspect Into U.S. Informant Soured by Press Leak By Pierre Thomas Feb. 13 — When a Somali-born computer student was arrested in Minneapolis last December on suspicion of helping al Qaeda, federal counterterrorism officials thought they might finally have found what they desperately need — a way of getting inside Osama bin Laden's shadowy network.

    MINNEAPOLIS — A man accused of providing support to al-Qaida trained in martial arts and with weapons, taught English to al-Qaida members and joined the Taliban front lines, according to an FBI affidavit. Terror suspect Mohammed Warsame, 30, twice saw combat with front line units of the Taliban while in Afghanistan and once sat next to Osama bin Laden at a meal, said the affidavit, which investigators said was based on interviews with Warsame. “The defendant stated that bin Laden was very inspirational,” according to the affidavit. Prosecutors argued Monday that Warsame, a Somali with Canadian citizenship, is a flight...

    The public court file against Mohammed A. Warsame, the Minneapolis college student accused of supporting Al-Qaida, is conspicuously void of detail. It alleges that he conspired to provide "material support and resources" to the terrorist organization starting in 2000 and says that he admitted going to an Afghanistan training camp with Osama bin Laden. For a handful of defense attorneys near Lackawanna, N.Y., the case has a familiar ring. There, six men of Yemeni descent who also attended a training camp were charged under the same federal material support law in the fall of 2002. Though the cases contain key...
