SAN DIEGO (AP) — A San Diego judge has ordered a man accused of trying to travel to Syria to join the Islamic State group to be sent from California to Minnesota to face charges.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Karen S. Crawford on Thursday signed a warrant for the removal of Abdurahman Daud.

The FBI arrested Daud and Mohamad Farah on April 20 in San Diego. The two are among six men charged 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.

Crawford last week ordered Farah to also be sent to Minnesota to face charges.
