[Updated: indictment attached] United States v. Yusuf (S.D. Cal.)
I posted yesterday about the new al-Shabaab indictment, United States v. Yusuf. I’m reposting now in order to circulate the indictment. Not a great deal of additional information here. The 2339A charge is predicated on support for a violation of 18 USC 956(a), which is in turn the standard charge for conspiring to commit unlawful acts of violence outside the United States; 2339A charges frequently are predicated on 956(a). As to both the 2339A and 2339B charges, the nature of the “material support or resources” in question is specified as money and personnel.
