Anti-War Activists Denounce FBI Terrorism Raids in Chicago & Minnesota

News

(AP) — The FBI says it's searched eight homes in Minnesota and Chicago in a terrorism investigation. One subject says the FBI is targeting leaders of the anti-war movement.

FBI spokesman Steve Warfield tells The Associated Press six warrants in Minneapolis and two in Chicago were served Friday. Warfield says the FBI is seeking "evidence relating to activities concerning the material support of terrorism."

Minneapolis anti-war activist Mick Kelley says his home was searched. He tells the AP he believes the FBI is "harassing anti-war organizers" who opposed U.S. intervention in the Middle East and Latin America.

Warfield wouldn't comment on whose homes were searched. But he says no immediate arrests are expected and there's no "imminent threat to the community."

The searches were first reported by the Star Tribune.
