FBI raids money-transfer businesses in Minneapolis

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Federal agents have raided three money transfer businesses in Minneapolis.

FBI spokesman E.K. Wilson confirms that agents served search warrants at three money transfer operations. Wilson wouldn't elaborate on the investigation.

The general manager of one business, Mustaqbal Express, says about 15 FBI agents spent more than four hours at his business on Wednesday.

Abdirahman Omar says the agents had a search warrant and said they were investigating documentation of money transfers. Omar says they took about 10 boxes of documents and copied computer hard drives.

Omar says the search warrant covered records for transfers to Somalia, Eritrea, Kenya, Sudan and other African nations.

The other businesses searched were Quran Express and Aaran Financial.
