Trial of Minnesota men accused of backing ISIS to start Wednesday

(Reuters) – Opening statements in a federal trial in Minnesota for three Somali-American men accused of trying to assist Islamic State and fight with the militant group in Syria are expected to begin on Wednesday. Minnesota residents Mohamed Farah, Abdirahman Daud and Guled Omar are charged with conspiring to provide material support to Islamic State and commit murder outside the United States, according to a brief filed by prosecutors. Six have already pleaded guilty to providing material support to Islamic State, and another is believed to be in Syria, said Ben Petok, a spokesman for the U.S. Attorney's Office for the District of Minnesota.
