American woman fell in love with ISIS fighter online

An American teenager was arrested on suspicion of trying to provide aid and support to the Al Qaeda-affiliated Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant after reportedly striking up an online romance with a man who claimed membership in the radical terror group.

Shannon Maureen Conley, 19, of Arvada, Colorado, has been charged with conspiracy to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization, ABC News reported.

She was arrested at the Denver International Airport April 8 by FBI agents as she was reportedly preparing to board a plane to Germany, with connecting flights to locations in Turkey — just hours away from the Syrian border.
