WASHINGTON - US federal prosecutors on Tuesday charged two Minnesota men with supporting Islamic State, the militant group that has captured swaths of territory in Syria and Iraq and carried out gruesome executions of civilians and foreigners.

The US Attorney's office in Minneapolis alleged in a criminal complaint that Abdi Nur, 20, and Abdullahi Yusuf, 18, had engaged in a conspiracy to provide material support to Islamic State, and that Nur had actually provided such support. Both men are US citizens of Somali ancestry.

Yusuf was scheduled to make an initial court appearance before a federal magistrate judge on Tuesday. But court documents said that Nur left the United States on a flight to Istanbul, Turkey on May 29, and had not returned.
