Nashville woman in court on terrorism charge

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

A Nashville woman will face a judge Thursday after she was accused in September of making terrorist threats to her co-workers in south Nashville.

Amal Ahmed Abdullahi, 29, is charged with attempted terrorism after police said she made a series of statements, including that her work place is full of non-believers, she was ready to die for Allah and she should pick up a gun and shoot everyone.

A co-worker who overheard Abdullahi's statements while working at CEVA Logistics in the Dell facility reported the incident to a superior, and police later began an investigation.

During an interview with detectives, Abdullahi said she remembered having a discussion of a religious nature with a co-worker, police said.

"It is important that everyone understand this is a prosecution of one individual, and is absolutely not reflective of Nashville's Muslim community," said Cpt. Paul Trickey, with the Specialized Investigations Division.

Abdullahi was jailed on $50,000 bond.
