Alberta, Canada man arrested for involvement with Al Qaeda

RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police) officers arrested a 38-year-old Alberta man for his alleged role in the multinational terrorist group that carried out the bombing at Forward Operating Base Marez in Mosul, Iraq. Faruq Khalil Muhammad Isa was taken into custody at the request of U.S. authorities.

The arrest followed a joint FBI-RCMP investigation into a “Tunisian foreign-fighter facilitation network” that sent Tunisians to Iraq through Libya to carry out suicide attacks against U.S. and coalition forces. Mr. Muhammad Isa faces a possible life sentence.
