SAN DIEGO (AP) — A woman charged in San Diego with aiding a Somali terrorist group is accused of sending $800 to two fighters in the organization.
The San Diego Union-Tribune reports an unsealed search warrant affidavit states that Nima Ali Yusuf was recorded on several phone calls arranging to send cash between January and July.
The 24-year-old is accused of conspiring in California and elsewhere to aid al-Shabab, an al-Qaida-linked militia trying to create an Islamic state in Somalia.
Authorities say Yusuf sent the money in small amounts of $50 or $100.
She was the fourth person charged in the past month in San Diego with helping al-Shabab. The others are accused of helping raise money and route funds to the radical Islamist group.
