Somali militant from Mpls urged Texas attack

Postby harassed citizen » 06 May 2015, 20:21

Days before it happened, an al-Shabab militant from Minneapolis called for an attack against the Texas contest whose participants drew cartoons depicting the Prophet Muhammad.

Two gunmen opened fire outside the event on Sunday. The cartoon contest, billed as a free-speech event but sponsored by an organization that is seen as an anti-Muslim hate group, had hired numerous security guards. The attackers were killed, and one guard was wounded.

In posts on social media, the al-Shabab militant, Mohamed Abdullahi Hassan, called on his "brothers" to carry out attacks similar to those in France earlier this year. There, gunmen killed 12 people, including several staff members of the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, which had included Muhammad among the subjects of its cartoons.
