A Reckless Driver Causes the Tragic Death of Five Women From Minnesota

The tragic incident involving a reckless driver colliding with a vehicle carrying five Somali girls has left us heartbroken. Khalid Omar, the director of their mosque, described Sabiriin Ali, Sagal Hersi, Siham Adam, Sahra Gesaade, and Salma Abdikadir as “pearls of the community — and the brightness of our future.”

Here’s what we know so far:

The women were on their way home Friday night after having henna applied at Karmel Mall and running last-minute errands before a friend’s wedding the next day.

Sabiriin Ali, 17, Sagal Hersi and Siham Adam, both 19 and Sahra Gesaade and Salma Abdikadir, both 20 were all pronounced dead at the scene Friday. 

A statement from the Minneapolis City Council member was released.

All 5 Girls Had a Promising Future Ahead of them.
