MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Members of Minnesota's large Somali community said Monday they are heartbroken and grieving but searching for ways to help after the weekend bombing in Somalia that killed more than 300 people.The truck bombing in Somalia's capital of Mogadishu on Saturday also left scores missing and nearly 400 people injured. In Minnesota, home to the largest Somali population in the U.S., many residents said they have relatives who were hurt or killed in the attack. At least one man who lived in Minnesota, Ahmed AbdiKarin Eyow, died. Another Minnesota man was desperately seeking news of his father, who is missing."It's really devastating," said Mohamud Noor, a community advocate in Minneapolis.
- Somalis in Minneapolis on defensive after police shooting

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The killing of an unarmed Australian woman by a Minneapolis police officer who is a Somali-American has turned an unwelcome spotlight on the city's beleaguered Somali community, where many again find themselves on the defensive.[...] negative comments have included former U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann's recent statement that Noor was an "affirmative-action hire by the hijab-wearing mayor of Minneapolis" — an apparent reference to the fact that Mayor Betsy Hodges has worn a head scarf when meeting with leaders of the city's Somali-American community.Damond, a white, 40-year-old spiritual teacher who was engaged to be married in August, was shot by Officer Noor as he sat in the passenger seat of a police vehicle.The immigrants have been coming to Minnesota from their war-torn homeland since the 1990s, drawn by generous social services and the sense of community among the diaspora.Seperately, a 20-year-old Somali-American went on a stabbing rampage at a shopping mall in St. Cloud last September, wounding 10 people before an off-duty police officer fatally shot him.Community, city and government leaders have worked to combat such violence, with programs including a pilot project designed to counter violent extremism by bolstering social services for Somali youth.Abdirizak Bihi, another community advocate, said when other officers have fatally shot people, city leaders have typically reserved judgment until all facts are in and the police union has stood up for the officers.

This is not good news for Snap Inc. The parent company of Snapchat saw its shares tumble in after-hours trading today after it reported disappointing user growth in its Q2 2017 earnings. It’s only the second earnings report since Snap went public in March, and hopes for a turnaround are deteriorating. Shares fell to $11.90 after hours, an all-time low. Snap debuted on the NYSE at $17 a share. It fell below that price a month ago and hasn’t recovered. The company reported daily active users growth of 7 million to 173 million total, but analysts were expecting about 8 million new users, CNBC reports. You can check out Snap’s full earnings release here. We’ll have more after the call later today.
