Minneapolis - A Minnesota woman accused of funnelling money to a terrorist group in Somalia has been arrested for refusing to stand at her trial.

Amina Farah Ali wouldn't get up when Chief US District Judge Michael Davis entered the courtroom on Monday as jury selection began.

Ali had been free on bond pending trial.

She and another defendant, Hawo Mohamed Hassan, are accused of raising thousands of dollars to send money and fighters from the US to Somalia.
