Mohamed Ibrahim Ahmed, an Eritrean who was living in Sweden, traveled to Somalia to receive training from the Shabab. He also provided the terrorist organization with approximately 3,000 euros, an AK-47 rifle, ammunition, and two grenades. A former Shabab military commander who became an informant provided information about Ahmed. While in prison following his conviction in his first terrorism case, Ahmed recruited at least five inmates to join ISIS, resulting in a second terrorism conviction.
