At least six men were arrested in California and Minnesota by the FBI on Sunday after a joint terrorism task force investigation into youths who traveled or tried to travel to Syria to join ISIS. A spokesman for the US Attorney's Office said the arrests were made in Minneapolis and San Diego but there is no threat to public safety. Spokesman Ben Petok did not give details about the charges and said more information would be released on Monday.
At least three men who were arrested in the Twin Cities were already known to authorities, according to KMSP.
The three men were stopped from boarding a plane to Istanbul with Hamza Ahmed, 19, at JFK Airport after riding on a Greyhound bus with him from Minneapolis to New York in November.
Ahmed was indicted for lying to the FBI during a terrorism investigation, conspiring to provide material support to the ISIS and attempting to provide material support in February.
He has pleaded not guilty.
No public charges were filed against his companions and little information was released about them.
An FBI affidavit said they are all between the ages of 19 and 20 and live in the Twin Cities.
