2 Tucson men facing charges they tried to join ISIS

Two Tucson men, both refugees from Somalia, have been arrested on suspicion of trying to join ISIS to fight for the terror group or launch an attack on U.S. soil, federal officials said Monday.

Ahmed Mahad Mohamed, 21, and Abdi Yemani Hussein, 20, were arrested Friday at the Tucson International Airport, according to a news release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Arizona. The two are facing charges of conspiracy to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization.

Mohamed, a permanent resident of the United States, and Hussein, a refugee, had been communicating with an undercover FBI agent who they believed was a supporter of ISIS ideology, according to a federal criminal complaint filed Friday.
