The US attorney’s office in San Diego has charged three California residents with conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists, conspiracy to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization, conspiracy to kill in a foreign country and several other offenses. The three suspects, Basaaly Saeed Moalin, Mohamed Mohamed Mohamud and Issa Doreh were arrested earlier this week. What has been released to the public thus far is that the men worked with former al-Shabab commander Moalim Aden Hashi Ayro who was killed in a US airstrike in 2008. Their activities allegedly centered on raising funds for the terror group and ultimately transferring the money to Somalia. Over the past year the US has managed to indict several individuals for supporting al-Shabaab in one form or another. With the large number of al-Shabaab sympathizers in the US this support is unlikely to abate anytime soon.
