A young Minnesota man known as the "emir" of a group accused of plotting to join Islamic State militants in Syria pleaded guilty on Thursday to conspiracy to provide material support to a foreign terrorist group, federal prosecutors said.

Abdirizak Mohamed Warsame, 20, of the St. Paul suburb of Eagan, was the 10th Minnesota man charged in an investigation into recruiting and support for the militant group among the Minneapolis-St. Paul Somali community.

US Attorney Andrew Luger said Islamic State recruiting in Minnesota was a problem and that guilty pleas were one way to help stop the recruiting pipeline.
