Minneapolis college student Tnuza Jamal Hassan pleaded guilty to attempting to provide support to the foreign terrorist organization, Al-Qaeda.

According to the defendant’s guilty plea and court documents, Hassan, while a student at St. Catherine University in St. Paul, Minnesota, drafted and anonymously delivered a letter encouraging two other students to join al-Qaeda.

However, she denied involvement with the letter in a later interview with FBI agents.

On September 18, 2017, Hassan purchased two roundtrip tickets- one from Minneapolis to Dubai, United Arab Emirates and the second from Dubai to Kabul, Afghanistan. Hassan admitted she planned to travel to Kabul and join al-Qaeda with no intention of returning to the U.S. The next day, she traveled from Minneapolis to Dubai, but she was unable to enter Kabul because she did not have a visa.

Documents also revealed that Hassan attempted to set several fires to the St. Catherine University campus on January 17, 2018.

At this time, she was living in a dormitory without the university’s permission. Hassan admitted her attempt to burn down buildings was in retaliation to the United States’ opposition to al-Qaeda.

Hassan has been charged with one count of first-degree arson in Ramsey County District Court.

Campus Reform reached out to St. Catherine University for a statement but did not hear back in time for publication.
