The New York son of Somali singer and politician Saado Ali Warsame is suing the US arm of a money-transfer business, claiming it helped fund the assassination of his mother.

Warsame was shot and killed by Al-Shabaab terrorists in Mogadishu, Somalia, in July 2014.

Her son, Harbi Hussein, who was born in New York but now lives in Minnesota, filed the case in Manhattan federal court last week against Dahabshiil, the largest money-transfer company in Africa.

Dahabshiil has been accused of funding terrorism by allowing people to send and receive money anonymously.

Warsame even wrote a song about Dahabshiil (whose name means "gold smelter” in Somali) called "Don’t Do Business With The Blood Smelter.”

She moved to Minneapolis, Minn., in the early 1990s, during the Somali civil war, later returning to Mogadishu in 2012 to work as a member of parliament.

Hussein says his mother’s activist songs and strong feminism made her a target for terrorists.

"She was one of the few Somali female musicians to go on stage without covering her head and she sometimes wore pants, which is unusual for women in Somalia,” reads the lawsuit.

Hussein seeks unspecified damages.
