Hi, I'm Yasim Abdi Mohamed

Age: 24

Address: Kingston, Ontario

• I was born in Somalia and immigrated to Canada when he was 7 along with my younger brother and parents. My family lived in Cambridge before moving to Toronto nearly five years ago. I lived in my mother's Toronto home before my arrest.

• I and Mohammed (Dirie) were arrested for gun smuggling at the Peace Bridge in Fort Erie, Ont., last Aug. 13. We are incarcerated in separate Kingston prisons after earlier pleading guilty to gun offences

• I and Mohammed and Fahim (Ahmad) are also charged with importing a firearm and ammunition for the benefit of a terrorist group and providing weapons to facilitate a terrorist activity.guilty to gun offences

• All of us are charged with participating or contributing to a terrorist group

• My Mummy, Asha Muhyadin recounted a conversation she had with me soon after my parole hearing last year. "Mummy, they are changing my story around. They want to know about terrorism," I told her. I said that the officers questioned me about terrorism and links to al Qaeda instead of asking how I came to possess a gun! That wasn't fair, was it, Mummy?

•Here's my profile in the Toronto Star
