We covered this in a prior post but there are new developments. Serious new developments.

Campus Reform reports:

Former student, alleged arsonist charged with aiding Al-Qaeda

A former St. Catherine University student who allegedly tried to burn down the school in retaliation for U.S. foreign policy has been charged with attempting to aid terrorists.

According to a three-count indictment obtained by ABC 5, the 19 year-old Tnuza Hassan is now facing federal charges for allegedly attempting to “provide material support and resources” to Al-Qaeda in September of last year.

“On or about September 19, 2017, within the State and District of Minnesota, and elsewhere, the defendant, Tnuza Hassan, did knowingly attempt to provide material support and resources…to a foreign terrorist organization, namely, al-Qa’ida, knowing that it was a designated foreign terrorist organization and that the organization had engaged and was engaging in terrorist activity and terrorism,” the indictment states.

Alongside her terrorism-related charge, Hassan is also being charged with arson and making a false statement to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

As previously reported by Campus Reform, the former student was arrested after she allegedly set eight fires in seven different buildings on campus, later explaining that her goal was to “hurt people” and “burn [the school] to the ground.”

“You guys are lucky that I don’t know how to build a bomb because I would have done that,” Hassan reportedly said after her arrest, telling investigators that similar violence against Muslims goes unnoticed and that she is retaliating for U.S. policy in the Middle East.
