Man pleads not guilty in terror group funding case
ST. LOUIS - A Minnesotan says he's not guilty of federal charges that he plotted to send money to a terrorist group in Somalia that the U.S. says has ties to al-Qaida.
Thirty-five-year-old Abdi Mahdi Hussein of Minneapolis entered the plea Monday in U.S. District Court in St. Louis, where he was indicted last month with St. Louis taxi driver Mohamud Abdi Yusuf and another man.
Hussein remains free on his own recognizance.
