Four Somalis in U.S. found guilty of supporting terrorists back home

A Somali terror leader implored his fellow countryman in California to send money 'to finance jihad," triggering a chain of events that ended with four convictions.

U.S. government agents recorded dozens of such calls a few years ago, according to the Department of Justice.

And on Friday, prosecutors played them to jurors in San Diego, who found four Somali nationals guilty of supporting terrorism in their native country.

    In a shameful action US blocked today a vote at UN condemning the terror attack by 'rebels' in Syria which killed 100 & wounded 250.
