– SHIRWA AHMED
Shirwa Ahmed was born in 1981 in Somalia. He came to USA, in 1996 and graduated from Roosevelt High School in Minneapolis. Shirwa Ahmed was a naturalized U.S. citizen.
In late 2008 Shirwa Ahmed, who was encouraged by Cabdulaahi Ahmed Faarax, left his University studies in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and went to Somalia, probably through Kenya, in order to go through military training and to join Islamist troops, who fought the Ethiopian army in Somalia. He was one of a group of about 20 young Somalis who left their homes in USA in late 2008 and it is assumed they went to fight in Somalia.
Shirwa Ahmed was one of the five men suspected to be suicide bombers, who killed himself and 29 others, on 10/28/2008, in Somalia. The event aroused concern in USA about homegrown radicalization of young Muslims (see – Salah Osman Ahmed). The FBI and Homeland Security were, therefore, investigating whether Shirwa Ahmed had developed a terrorist recruiting network in Minneapolis area (see – Minneapolis Network).
The FBI described, in 02/2009, Shirwa Ahmed as the first USA citizen to carry out a suicide bombing. FBI Director Mueller said he was “radicalized in his hometown in Minnesota.”
