Minneapolis Mosque at Center of al Qaeda in Somalia Terror Recruitment

Three Americans killed in Somalia fighting for al-Shabaab, al Qaeda's local affiliate. What is the one thing they had in common? The Abubakar as-Saddique Islamic Center:

"All these kids missing, they all have one thing in common: They all participated in youth programs in that mosque," said Jamal.

Jamal and Bihi said leaders of the mosque, at the very least, allowed people to come around their facility and recruit young men to fight in Somalia -- a charge the head imam denies.

Recruiting for violent jihad at a mosque? It's unthinkable!
