FBI makes arrests in Minneapolis as part of the Joint Terrorism Task Force operation.

Ben Petok, spokesman for Andy Luger, U.S Attorney said “There is no threat to public safety.”

Monday will see more information being released by Luger and FBI special agent Richard Thornton when they brief the media and give details regarding the arrests.

Somali Activist Omar Jamal was of the opinion that there had been a lot of discussion in the community about the arrests of several young Somalis both in California and Minneapolis that appear to be linked to investigations that are currently underway related to Al Shabab and the Islamic State of the Levant.

Since 2007, 22 young men have left Minnesota to join and fight alongside the Somalian terrorist group Al-Shabab. Several have been charged, many are still at large and at least nine have lost their lives.

“The community is in a confused state,” Jamal said Sunday night. “They do not know what is going on ….This is a very serious issue. We as a community are concerned about losing our kids to [ISIL].”
