A Reston resident is among three that have been arrested for allegedly funding an overseas terrorist group that partners with al-Qa'ida, the U.S. Department of Justice announced Wednesday. The suspects are accused of providing material support including money to al-Shabaab, a "designated foreign terrorist organization that is conducting a violent insurgency campaign in Somalia," DOJ officials said in a statement. In addition to the three arrested, officials said there are two more suspects being sought in Kenya and Somalia. Officials on Wednesday arrested Muna Osman Jama, 34, in her home in Reston. Also arrested were Hinda Osman Dhirane, 44, at her home in Kent, Washington; and Farhia Hassan at her home in the Netherlands. The two additional fugitives being sought are Fardowsa Jama Mohamed in Kenya and Barira Hassan Abdullahi in Somalia.
