Update Moments Later:   Omar Jamal:  the US must investigate and bring the terrorist’s body home to Minnesota.  The nerve!

It’s been awhile since we had any news about the missing Somali Americans, former refugees, believed to have joined al Shabaab for terrorist training in Somalia.  Hat tip: Whuptdue and Blulitespecial.

The boy’s family is reporting he was killed, shot in the head, by the radical Islamists he had gone to join.  No official report yet.  From Fox News:

A Minnesota man recruited to join an Al Qaeda-linked terrorist group overseas may have been assassinated in Somalia by the very terrorist group he went there to help.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation has been investigating for several months at least 20 Somali-American men from the Minneapolis area who recently traveled to Somalia to train with the terrorist group al-Shabaab.

One of those men — 17-year-old Burhan Hassan — was killed in Mogadishu on Friday, his uncle, Osman Ahmed, told FOX News.

“Someone who claimed (to be) a member of al-Shabaab called Burhan’s mom Friday (afternoon) and said Burhan died Friday morning,” Ahmed said. “Burhan’s mom got shocked and (threw) the phone when she heard the story.”

“Al-Shabaab assassinated Burhan and shot (him in) the head,” the individual said, according to Ahmed.

A law enforcement official told FOX News on Sunday that one of the Somali-American men was recently killed in Somalia by artillery fire, but the official declined to release the man’s name.

“My sister still is under shock,” Ahmed said.

Ahmed added that he and his family last heard from Hassan two weeks ago.

I was in the hearing room for the superficial, politically correct hearing that was held in March of this year by Senator Lieberman’s Homeland Security committee.   Osman Ahmed testified that day and described his nephew as a smart kid but brainwashed by someone at the local mosque.

“(He) was a brilliant student with straight A’s and on top of his class,” Ahmed testified at a Senate hearing in March focusing on recruitment efforts by al-Shabaab. “He was an ambitious kid with the hope to go to Harvard University to study medicine or law and become a medical doctor or a lawyer.”

Ahmed accuses a local mosque of helping al-Shabaab recruit his nephew and others in the Minneapolis area.

Question for Lewiston, ME and Nashville, TN:  any Somali youths missing from your cities?

For new readers, the US State Department has admitted over 80,000 Somali refugees to the US in the last 25 years and then last year had to suspend family reunification because widespread immigration fraud was revealed through DNA testing.
