Durham anti-war activist got FBI visit amid raids
RALEIGH, N.C. — FBI agents visited a North Carolina anti-war activist at his home in Durham last week around the same time authorities were searching eight locations in Minneapolis and Chicago.
Kosta Harlan said Monday the agents tried to question him for about 10 minutes Friday about an ongoing terrorism investigation. Harlan says he refused to answer questions without speaking with an attorney. He would not discuss Monday what questions the agents asked.
The 26-year-old Harlan has been involved in anti-war and social justice protests for years. An FBI spokeswoman confirmed the visit but declined to discuss details.
Warrants from last week's raids in Chicago and Minneapolis suggested agents were looking for links between anti-war activists and terrorist groups in Colombia and the Middle East.
