Details are still sketchy, but the Associated Press says that the Federal Bureau of Investigation has raided two homes in Chicago and six in Minneapolis on terrorism-related charges. But activists in Minneapolis say the FBI is targeting anti-war protestors. One woman in Minneapolis whose home was raided served as a leader in protesting the Republican National Convention two years ago, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports.
UPDATE (September 27, 8:58 a.m.): More on this story from the Sun-Times. The FBI search warrants suggest the bureau's agents are looking for possible ties between the activists and terrorist organizations in Columbia and the Middle East. Two Chicago-based activists who were targeted say agents searched their home for 12 hours. They say the FBI wants to intimidate the peace movement and denied wrongdoing.
