ANOTHER American traitor paid the ultimate price for joining up with the bloodthirsty Islamic State terrorist group when he was killed in a weekend fight with a Syrian opposition group, officials said.
Abdirahmaan Muhumed, a father of nine from Minnesota, was killed in the same Syrian battle as another homegrown terrorist, Douglas McAuthur McCain.
It was not known if the they knew each other, but the pair died fighting for the same Islamic outfit behind the beheading of American journalist James Foley.
Like McCain, Muhumed hailed from Minnesota, which has a large Somali population.
The US has not official confirmed Muhumed’s death, but his family has been notified, according to a report.
A profile of Muhumed by Minnesota Public Radio this past June described him as a 29-year-old Somali-American.
That report said at least 15 men from the Twin Cities’ Somali-American community had traveled to Syria to join ISIS, which has captured territory in Syria and Iraq.
In a Facebook messages to an MPR reporter, Muhumed wrote “I give up this worldly life for Allah” and “Allah loves those who fight for his cause.”
A picture posted on the social network showed Muhumed carrying a Koran in one hand and a rifle in the other.
