MINNEAPOLIS - A Somali-American teenager who was stopped at a Minnesota airport as he sought to fly to Turkey last year pleaded guilty in federal court on Thursday to conspiring to support Islamic State militants.

Abdullahi Mohamud Yusuf, 18, was stopped by FBI agents at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport in late May with a passport he had applied for on an expedited basis the previous month, prosecutors said.

Yusuf was charged in November with conspiring to support Islamic State and has been staying at a halfway house. He pleaded guilty before US District Chief Judge Michael Davis and was ordered released on bond.
