Minnesota man accused of trying to join ISIS appears in courtSubmitted: 05/22/2015
MINNEAPOLIS - Documents are revealing new details about a Minnesota man authorities say tried to travel to Syria to join the Islamic State group.


The documents say 21-year-old Abdirahman Yasin Daud conspired for at least a year to get to Syria along with others to fight and, in some cases die, for the Islamic State group.

Prosecutors will argue at Daud's detention hearing today that he should stay in custody because he's a flight risk and a danger to the community.
