The Canadian terror suspect killed during a police raid had recorded what authorities described as a “martyrdom video” in which he warned of an imminent attack, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police said on Thursday.

Canadian authorities scrambled to identify the would-be suicide bomber on Wednesday after they were alerted by the FBI to the existence of the video in which a balaclava-clad man pledging allegiance to Isis. “Oh Canada, you received many warnings, you were told many times what would become of those who fight against the Islamic State,” said the man.

“Based on the information, the attack was supposed to be taking place within the following 72 hours and was likely to target an urban centre, either during morning or afternoon rush hour,” said Mike Cabana of the RCMP.
