Somali woman faces 5 years prison term in the US

A Somali woman in the United States may receive a five year prison term after she was found guilty of raising money for Al Shabaab rebel group in her native country of Somalia.

Saynab Hussein, a 24 year old nursing student admitted that she had raised money for some of the Somali men who travelled from Minnesota to Somalia in order to fight alongside Al Shabaab fighters in 2008.

She was first charged with raising money for terrorists when she was 19 years old in 2009. She denied the allegations saying that she did not know anybody who raised money for the group.

However, she later admitted that she had raised the money and personally participated in fundraising activities. She is due to be sentenced at the end of January next year.
