Fort St. John man arrested on terrorism charges

Global News is reporting that the RCMP Integrated National Security Enforcement Team has arrested and charged a 33 year Fort St. John man with committing terrorism offences.

Othman Ayed Hamdan is charged with counselling to commit murder for the benefit of a terrorist group, counselling to assault causing bodily harm for the benefit of a terrorist group and counselling to commit aggravated assault for the benefit of a terrorist group.

The investigation into Hamdan began in October 2014. RCMP say they have since found he was posting pro-ISIS propaganda online, including instructions to kill people in the name of Jihad.

The man is being held in custody and a court date will be set shortly.
