FBI: Terror affiliate arrested in San Diego

SAN DIEGO — A San Diego resident suspected of terrorist connections during his time in Syria was arrested in Rancho Bernardo Wednesday, accused of lying about his role as a Sharia law judge and acting as a mediator between the Islamic State and al-Nusra Front, according to a complaint filed Thursday.

Mohamad Saeed Kodaimati, 24, was arrested by the FBI at his home and booked into custody on charges of making false statements involving international terrorism.

Saeed left San Diego in 2012 for Istanbul.
