An Ohio man was arrested at the Columbus airport Monday as he was boarding a flight on his way to join ISIS, federal prosecutors said.

The man, Aaron Travis Daniels, 20, of Columbus — also known as Harun Muhammad and Abu Yusuf — admitted having sent money to an intermediary for ISIS recruiter Abu Issa al-Amriki, the FBI said in a criminal complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Columbus. Officials said he also planned to travel to Libya “for the purpose of joining” the terrorist group.
