Two of the men — Ahmed Mohamed Isse, 22, and Abdifatah Osman Keenadiid, 24 — were reportedly from Minnesota; Mustafe Noorudiin. 27, is reportedly from Kansas City; Shafie Die 25, is reportedly from Tucson, Arizona; Dagestan Abdelkarem Ali Mohamed, 21, is reportedly from Illinois; Abdirizak Mouled, 24, is reportedly from Ontario, Canada; and Qasim Said Musa, 22, is reportedly from London, England. . . .
