NEW YORK (AP) — Two men facing charges they fought for the same terror group behind the deadly shopping mall attack in Kenya are due in court in New York City.
The men have an appearance scheduled Monday afternoon in federal court in Brooklyn.
The pair and another defendant pleaded not guilty last year to charges they provided material support to al-Shabab. That group has taken responsibility for the weekend attack in a crowded mall in Nairobi.
U.S. prosecutors allege the men are dangerous and influential members of an "elite" al-Shabab suicide bomber unit. They were captured in Africa last year while traveling to Yemen to team up with the al-Qaida offshoot there.
