2 Charged in Arson Fires Set Amid George Floyd Protests
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) _ Federal authorities said Thursday they've charged two more people in arson fires set during protests that followed George Floyd's death in Minneapolis after being arrested by police.
Jose Angel Felan Jr., 34, and Mena Dhaya Yousif, 22, both of Rochester, were charged after being arrested in Mexico on immigration violations.
The U.S. Attorney's office in Minnesota said Felan is charged with three counts of arson and Yusif is charged with being an accessory after the fact for allegedly helping Felan evade police.
Authorities said Felan set fires May 28 at two stores and a high school on University Avenue in St. Paul.
