WASHINGTON — Fourteen U.S. citizens have been charged with attempting to join al-Shabab, a Somali-based terrorist group linked to al-Qaida, law enforcement officials told NBC News.
The charges were due to be formally announced at a news conference at noon ET at the Justice Department, NBC reported.
The 14 people include 12 from Minnesota, one from Alabama and one from California, the officials said.
Al-Shabab is Somalia’s most-feared militant group.
