3 ISIS recruits from Edmonton believed killed

Three Edmonton cousins have died while fighting overseas for ISIS, says the father of one of the men.

Ahmed Hirsi says his 20-year-old son Mahad was killed last fall along with cousins Hamsa and Hersi Kariye.

A third cousin from Minnesota, Hanad Abdullahi Mohallim, was also killed, he said.

Other family members deny the men died while fighting for ISIS, but Hirsi insists it’s true.

He said his son and two nephews left Edmonton without telling him in October 2013.
