Muslima Accused of St. Kate’s Arson Now Facing Federal Terrorism Charge

The United States Attorney’s Office in Minnesota announced Wednesday that the 19-year-old woman accused of starting fires in several different buildings last month on the campus of St. Catherine University in St. Paul is now facing federal charges, including attempting to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization.

Those charges stem from an incident federal authorities claim happened in March of last year when she is alleged to have attempted to recruit two fellow St. Kate’s students to “join the jihad in fighting.”
