Report: American Who Joined ISIS Worked at Minnesota Airport

An American who joined the Islamic terrorist group ISIS and was killed last week once worked at an airport in Minneapolis, according to Fox affiliate KMSP.

Abdirahmaan Muhumed, the now-dead ISIS member, worked for the airplane cleaning service Delta Global Services, two former co-workers told KMSP.

Muhumed was killed last week fighting on behalf of ISIS in Syria. He was a father of nine children and the second American to have been killed while fighting with ISIS.

More from KMSP:

Two former employees confirmed working with Muhumed at Delta Global Services, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Delta Airlines. Earlier this year, the cleaning contract was taken over by another company, Airserv. The Metropolitan Airports Commission is in charge of granting security clearances, but a MAC person told Fox 9 News they could not comment on what Muhumed’s were due to the ongoing FBI investigation. Instead, they offered to check with Homeland Security to see if they can release any information at all.

It’s unclear how long Muhumed worked at DGS, or when exactly he left the Twin Cities to fight with ISIS. He died in the same battle as Douglas McCain, who was also from Minnesota. Authorities estimate that as many as 15 men and one woman have left the metro to fight with the terror group.
