Two Americans charged with supporting IS

The US Department of Justice sealTwo young American men, one of whom is in the Middle East fighting, have been charged with supporting the Islamic State group, the Justice Department said Tuesday. Somali Americans Abdi Nur, 20, and Abdullahi Yusuf, 18, have been charged with "conspiracy to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization, namely, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL)," Assistant Attorney General John Carlin said. Yusuf was to appear in court Tuesday in Minneapolis, where there is a large Somali American community. Abdi Nur, who traveled May 29 to Turkey, through which many jihadists pass en route to fight with IS, was to have returned to the United States June 16 but did not, the statement added.
