A Minnesota man was so angry that he missed his flight that he’s suing the TSA and the Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport.

Hooman Nikizad said he arrived at the airport two hours before his scheduled departure but was stuck in line most of the time, making him miss the flight, CNN reports. 

In the suit, the passenger said only one body scanner was running.

“The [Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport] and TSA have done a very poor job of getting passengers through security,” Nikizad wrote in the claim.

Nikizad wants reimbursed for the flight and is asking for $506.85.

State and federal authorities are investigated an alleged ISIS “kill list” that contains personal information of dozens of Minnesota law enforcement officers, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. 

A group of hackers affiliated with ISIS in Iraq and the Levant is accused of creating a list of names, addresses and telephone numbers of at least 36 officers across Minnesota. The group calls itself the Caliphate Cyber Army.

The list also included instructions to kill and was posted on the encrypted app Telegram.

Authorities are trying to determine how legitimate the group is.

“It is on our radar and we have been working with the various agencies which have been both named and unnamed,” FBI spokesman Kyle Loven said of the list. “We’re proceeding forward with this matter and treating it as a serious threat.”

A Minnesota man is accused of threatening FBI agents on social media following the arrest of his friend who was charged with conspiring to help ISIS, Fox News reports.

Khaalid Adam Abdulkadir, 19, was charged Friday with making the threats on Twitter after the FBI arrested his friend, 20-year-old Abdirizak Mohamed Warsame.

In grammatically challenged messages, he threatened to “kill them FBI” and wrote, “I’m kill them FEDS for take my brothers,” according to court documents.

“While there are many legitimate means in the United States to voice dissent and difference of opinion with our government, threatening violent retaliation against federal agents is both illegal and outrageous,” U.S. Attorney Andy Luger said in a statement.

He is being held without bail until a court hearing on Wednesday.

Despite a rash of well-publicized arrests of American suspected of trying to join ISIS, the terror group continues to successfully recruit U.S. residents, the head of the FBI in Minnesota said Wednesday.

In the Minneapolis area, which is home to the largest Somali community in the U.S., six men were arrested recently for allegedly plotting to join ISIS.

Still, the FBI continues to investigate what appears to be an increasing number of ISIS sympathizers, said FBI Special Agent in Charge of the Minnesota Field Office, Richard Thornton, said Wednesday.

“There are people in this community that are at various stages along the path to traveling as we speak,” he said. “I can’t tell you if there is one on an airplane as we speak, necessarily, but the arrests and the other activities have not stopped the activity across the board.”

Investigators: American Accused of Trying to Join ISIS Threatened to Kill FBI Agents

Mohamed Abdihamid Farah

A Minnesota man arrested for allegedly trying to travel to Syria to join ISIS told an informant that he’d kill FBI agents if he felt threatened, CBS reports. 

Mohamed Abdihamid Farah, 21, was among six Minnesota men arrested last month on charges of conspiring to provide material support to foreign terrorists.

According to authorities, Farah even discussed tweeting FBI agents upon arrival in Syria. In a recorded conversation, he said he would kill FBI agents “if our backs are against the wall.”

Daud’s attorney, Bruce Nestor, said the allegations are nonsense because his client never intended to commit any of the crimes.

“Many of the alleged statements are simply youthful boasting which, like the so-called conspiracy, were encouraged and facilitated by a government informant who himself tried to join ISIS and repeatedly had lied to the government,” Nestor said.
