Minneapolis mosque to respond to allegations

Leaders of a Minneapolis mosque allegedly linked to missing young Somali men have scheduled a news conference Tuesday at 12:00 p.m. to respond to the allegations.

The FBI says some Minnesota men "potentially" may have gone back to Somalia to fight alongside a militant Islamic group.

Some of the young men attended the Abubakar As-Saddique Islamic Center in Minneapolis, where leaders will discuss the allegations today.
