Muslim Terror Teen Arrested In Edmonton Attempting To Join Islamic Social Justice Warrior Group ISIS

A teenage boy from the Edmonton area has been charged with trying to leave Canada to commit an act of terror, CBC News has learned.

The 17-year-old was arrested Thursday in Beaumont, south of the city, by the RCMP’s integrated national security enforcement team.

The teen was charged with trying to leave the country to fight with the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, a terrorist organization that controls a vast tract of territory in Syria and northern Iraq and has become infamous for its cruelty.

The suspect, who can’t be identified because he is under the age of 18, faces two charges: That he attempted to leave Canada to commit an act of terror, and that he attempted to leave the country to join a terrorist group.
