US charges 14 over links to Somalia's al-Shabab 05 Aug 2010 US officials have charged 14 people with providing money, personnel and services to the Somali militant group al-Shabab. The charges stem from four separate indictments in the US states of Minnesota, Alabama and California. On Wednesday, a man was charged with attempting to support al-Qaeda [al-CIAduh] and al-Shabab. Prosecutors said Shaker Masri of Chicago had sought to travel to Somalia to join al-Shabab, which the US and UK consider a terrorist group.
