3 more Minnesota men get sentenced in ISIL plot

This undated file photo provided by the Sherburne County Sheriff's Office in Elk River, Minn., shows Adnan Farah, of Minnesota. Farah was sentenced at U.S. District Court in Minnesota on Tuesday, Nov. 15, 2016, to 10 years in prison for conspiring to join the Islamic State group in Syria.

The sentencings in the conspiracy wrap on Wednesday when Davis is scheduled to decide the fates of three men who were found guilty by a jury for their parts in the plot.

Prosecutors are seeking sentences as long as 40 years for Abdirahman Yasin Daud, Mohamed Abdihamid Farah, and Guled Ali Omar.

Two other men that were part of the group, Abdi Nur and Yusuf Jama, traveled successfully to Syria in 2014 without getting caught. Nur, who is believed to still be in Syria, has been charged in the case. Authorities believe Jama was killed in the fighting.

The FBI informant also testified during the trial that members of the group reached out to Mohamad Roble, a Minnesota man of Somali decent who authorities believe traveled to Syria in October 2014, to request money to help them travel to Syria to join ISIL.
