Somali groups in Minnesota are trying to give young people a positive outlet to keep them away from negative influences such as drugs, violence and extremism. One such effort is a basketball tournament that is bringing together several mosques from the Twin Cities. Abdi Mahamud attended the tournament and spoke with participants. Salem Solomon narrates his report.
