Feds Think Man Aided Terror Suspects Through Texas

SAN ANTONIO (AP) - Federal officials believe suspected terrorists are in the United States and that a Somali man in custody helped them in through Mexico and Texas.

A Justice Department memo and other documents obtained by the San Antonio Express-News says federal officials believe the suspects, who remain at large, are members of East African groups.

Last spring, U.S. Homeland Security officials issued an alert asking Houston-area law enforcement to be on the lookout for a suspected member of the al-Shabaab group, an al-Qaida ally based in
Somalia. That was after the new charges were added against 24-year-old Ahmed Muhammed Dhakane, who had been picked up in Brownsville in 2008. On Nov. 2, Dhakane pleaded guilty to making
false statements in support of his asylum application and is to be sentenced April 28.
