Federal prosecutors have obtained another guilty plea related to their investigation into the recruitment of Minnesota fighters for the Somali terror group al-Shabab.
Saynab Hussein, pleaded guilty to perjury today in federal court in Minneapolis. Hussein told a grand jury in 2009 that she did not know anyone who raised money for the Minnesota men who went to fight Ethiopian troops in Somalia.
But prosecutors said in a court document that Hussein had raised money for the men.
Hussein could be sentenced to up to five years in prison.
