NATIONAL BRIEFING / MINNESOTA

TIMES WIRE REPORTS

A third man has pleaded guilty to terrorism-related charges stemming from a federal investigation into Americans traveling to Somalia to fight with Islamic militants.

Kamal Hassan acknowledged lying to FBI agents and admitted spending time at a training camp in Somalia run by Shabab, a group designated by the U.S. government as a terrorist group linked to Al Qaeda.

Hassan admitted to a federal judge in Minneapolis that he had fought with Shabab in Somalia. He faces up to eight years in prison in a plea agreement worked out with the U.S. attorney's office.
