Not involved with the former, he’ll have plenty time with the latter.
Accused terrorist told comrade suicide bombings against innocent civilians were a ‘forgivable sin’ — just like masturbation
Accused: Ali Yasin Ahmed convinced one of his alleged terror colleagues that a suicide bomb attack was no worse a sin than masturbation
- Ali Yasin Ahmed will stand trial in federal court in New York City
- Allegedly joined Somalia terror group al-Shabaab and recruited members
- Told his colleague not to worry about suicide bombing as a sin
An alleged terrorist facing trial in New York City justified killing innocent people in suicide bomb attacks as a ‘forgivable sin comparable to masturbation’, court papers show.
Ali Yasin Ahmed made the twisted claim during conversations in 2008 intercepted by federal authorities as they put him and co-defendants Mahdi Hashi and Mohammed Yusuf under surveillance.
All three are to stand trial in Brooklyn charged with providing financial and material support to Somalian based militant group al-Shabaab, which has merged with al-Qaeda.
