Muhammad had been the subject of a preliminary investigation by the FBI's Joint Terrorist Task Force since his return from Yemen, where he was arrested and had in his possession a false Somali passport, ABC News has learned.Forged Somali passports are as easy to buy as bread in the Bakaara market of Mogadishu Somalia for just $80 and in less than 24 hours, you can became a Somali citizen, born in Mogadishu. Abdifatah Farah Yasin not only sells the passport but also "authenticates" it by putting a seal of the Somali ministry of foreign affairs and forging the signature of the last controller of passports before the break-up of the Somali state.
The last government, of Siad Barre, was toppled in 1991. Forged Somali passports can be processed within minutes, and Ethiopian and Kenyan passports are also available. Birth certificates, university diplomas, and various forms of photo identification can also be openly purchased. This illicit sub-market is known as Cabdalle Shideeye after one of its first proprietors.
