MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – A Minnesota woman who has refused to stand for her trial on terror charges now says she was mistreated in jail.

Amina Ali says her veil and clothing were forcibly removed after she refused to disrobe in the Sherburne County Jail.

Ali says jail officials stepped on her and twisted her arms. She says she asked for medical attention and none was given.

Thomas Volk, spokesman for the U.S. Marshals Service in Minnesota, said female sheriff’s deputies were called on to handle the situation. Volk said Ali then complied. He said no force was used.

Ali and another woman are accused of raising thousands of dollars for al-Shabab, a terror group blamed for widespread violence in Somalia. They have said they are innocent and were collecting money for charity.
