Man charged with threatening FBI agents on Twitter
MINNEAPOLIS — Federal authorities have charged a Minneapolis man with threatening FBI agents after the arrest this week of another Minnesota man on charges that he conspired to help the Islamic State group.
The criminal complaint alleges that 19-year-old Khaalid Adam Abdulkadir posted the threat on his Twitter account following the arrest of his friend, 20-year-old Abdirizak Mohamed Warsame, of Eagan, on Wednesday. The FBI says its agents arrested Abdulkadir on Friday morning.
The complaint says Abdulkadir posted two separate tweets containing threats. One included the words "kill them FBI."
