Somali teens falling intto FBI dragnets in the Twin Cities (MN) area

The Washington Post has a story Saturday “Now everything is broken: FBI terror dragnet sweeps up Somali Americans”, by Abigail Hauslohner. Ten young men living in Minneapolis-St. Paul have been caught in a sting for trying to join ISIS.  One mother has lost two sons to the sting.
I lived in Minneapolis 1997-2003 and it was common to see Somali women on the streets downtown.   But there was never a hint of anything like this when I lived there.  Another major majority community in St. Paul is the Hmong.
