ISIS fanatic killed by police while plotting suicide bombing in Canada

An ISIS fanatic, 23 year old Aaron Driver is dead after Canada's national police force thwarted an alleged suicide bomb plot in Ontario. He had planned to carry out a suicide bombing mission in a public area during rush-hour but was killed during a confrontation with police in a house in Strathroy, a senior police official said Wednesday night.

Driver, who was originally from Winnipeg, Manitoba, was arrested last year for openly supporting Islamic State on social media. He was not charged with a crime, but in February, he was placed on a peace bond, a court order that restricted his movement, required that he stay off social media and computers and not associate with any terrorist organization, including ISIS.

He was known to authorities for tweeting about his support for ISIS under the alias Harun Abdurahman, including urging the group to target the Canadian police and military as well as praising the attack on Parliament Hill in October 2014.
