Minneapolis Somali Man Discovered Dead in his Homeland

The Somali Justice Advocacy Center says 17 men from Minneapolis went missing last year. Now, the third of those men has turned up dead. 21-year-old Jamal Bana was shot in the head yesterday during combat in the city of Mogadishu. His family learned of his death through internet pictures that surfaced.Somali leaders say Bana, a graduated of Roseville High School, was recruited from Minneapolis to join a terror network and fight in Somalia's civil war. Local Somali community organizers fear more of the men will be dead soon, but hope to find the people responsible for convincing the men to fight.
