SAN DIEGO — A man accused of trying to travel to Syria to join the Islamic State group is going to be sent from California to Minnesota to face charges.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Karen S. Crawford in San Diego signed a warrant for the removal of Mohamad Farah.

The FBI arrested Farah and Abdurahman Daud last weekend in San Diego. They are among six men charged in a criminal complaint unsealed Monday with conspiracy to support a foreign terrorist organization. The four others were arrested in Minnesota and authorities say the six are friends.

The complaint says the men planned to reach Syria by going to nearby countries from Minneapolis, San Diego or New York City.

A hearing is scheduled for Daud in San Diego on April 30.
