Good news to start your day – Islamic State claims fighter killed in airstrike was electronics store worker from Alberta

An Islamic State-linked media outlet has published a fond eulogy for an ISIL fighter who appears to be a previously unknown Canadian who traveled from Alberta to the so-called caliphate where he died in a coalition airstrike.

The man, who adopted Al-Kanadi as part of his nom de guerre to mark his Canadian roots, worked at an electronics store in the province before his radicalization, the notice says.
