    in Minneapolis Revealed in New Court Documents

    MINNEAPOLIS -- A group of Minneapolis-area Somalis, including some who traveled to their homeland to allegedly take up arms against the Ethiopian army, held secret meetings in 2007 to plan the trips, created fake itineraries to fool family members and challenged one another about their commitment, prosecutors contend in a court filing.

    The document was filed this week in advance of a trial for one man accused of being part of the conspiracy.

    It sheds new light on how the recruiting operation worked in Minneapolis and how some of the men arrived at safehouses in Somalia, where they received AK-47s and weapons training.

    This is the part that I do not understand.

    As your article states: "they went back to Somalia to fight against the invading Ethiopian army".


    So how does that make them terrorists??
