#1 Tennessee's Middle District, Ed Yarbrough, told the newspaper that Somalis have a "cultural thing about testifying against each other.... That's what I've been told."

#5 It will be very interesting to see what penalties they are facing, along with witness tampering and intimidation, which is the only one mentioned.
