3 Somali men missing, may be in Somalia

The Star Tribune reported Saturday that the families of three missing Somali men fear they may have returned to Somalia to fight in a war.
Two of the men, Abdisalam Ali, 19, and Mohamoud Hassan, 18, are students of the University of Minnesota, and the other, Burhan Hassan, 17, is a senior at Roosevelt High School.
They have been missing since Nov. 4.
The families urge other families with missing children to come forward and speak with authorities.
Rumors say that some Somali men, ages 17 to 20, that have gone missing have been recruited to fight in Somalia.
Some say that there is doubt to these rumors.
Police say that men from other U.S. cities have recently returned to Somalia as well.
Family members say that they have received calls from their missing loved ones saying that they are safe somewhere in Somalia.
