Two Somalis arrested for joining ISIL

MOGADISHU, Somalia — Two Somali nationals were arrested in Tucson while heading to Egypt’s Sinai region to join Islamic State and Iraq levant, according to officials with the U.S. Department of Justice.

The officials said the suspects identified as Ahmed Mahad Mohamed, 21, and Abdi Yemani Hussein, 20, were arrested at Tucson’s airport on July 26, after the two checked in for their flight to Egypt.

They were accused of providing material support to ISIS terrorists.

Both Mohamed and Hussein revealed they want to travel overseas in order to fight on ISIS’ behalf, or conduct an attack within the U.S. if they were unable to travel, according to the officials.
