(Worthy News)-- The FBI is trying to track down Somalian men who have left Minnesota, to fight in Syria with al Qaeda against Syrian President Assad and his regime. The agency says that those who left Minnesota were motivated by radical ideology, not nationalism.
The FBI has not specified how many people are believed to involved, but a leader in the Minnesota Somali community told a local TV station that at least a dozen men have gone overseas.
