Two women including a mother of six accused of sending money to Al-Shabaab are headed for federal trial
Two women, including a mother of six, will face trial this week after being accused of sending money to Al-Shabaab.
Hinda Osman Dhirane, 46, of Kent, Washington, and Muna Osman Jama, 36, of Reston, Virginia, were arrested in 2014 and charged with providing material support to terrorists.
They funneled small amounts of money to Al-Shabaab, a terrorist group based in Somalia, which became an Al-Qaeda affiliate in 2012, prosecutors say.
Dhirane’s husband told KIRO 7 how he and his family woke up to find police and FBI agents at their home during his wife’s arrest in July 2014.
‘They came at four in the morning. I have a five-year-old. She cried,’ he told the network. Dhirane’s husband said at the time he didn’t believe his wife gave money to terrorist organizations.
The bench trial for Dhirane and Jama will open Monday in federal court in Alexandria, near Washington, DC and is expected to take up to two weeks.
