A Minneapolis man accused of conspiring to send Americans to a terrorist group, al-Shabab, in Somalia was convicted on five terrorism-related counts Thursday, the Associated Press reports.

Mahamud Said Omar, 46, faces up to life in prison for funding al-Shabab and sending young recruits to Somalia once they were indoctrinated in Minneapolis.

The AP said Omar is the first of others to stand trial in an investigation into the recruitment of more than 20 men living in Minnesota, which has a big Somali population.

The trial opened a window into how would-be terrorists were recruited and what happened once they reached Somalia.
