Imam Abdirahman Aden Kariye was buckled into his airplane seat Sunday ready to fly home. Then TSA agents ordered him off, causing him to miss Eid at his Bloomington mosque.

Imam Abdirahman Aden Kariye arrived at the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport more than three hours early Sunday and passed extra security measures. But he was still booted off the last direct flight to Minneapolis. He missed leading the Eid prayer Monday at Dar Al Farooq mosque, which marks the end of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan.
