FBI ar­rests Hawaii-based sol­dier on ter­ror­ism charges

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - WORLD -

HONOLULU — A U.S. of­fi­cial says that an ac­tive duty Army sol­dier has been ar­rested by the FBI in Hawaii on ter­ror­ism charges.

The of­fi­cial says that the sol­der was ar­rested be­cause of con­nec­tions he had with the Is­lamic State group.

He says the sol­dier was with the 25th In­fantry Divi­sion at Schofield Bar­racks in Honolulu.

No other de­tails were avail­able.

The of­fi­cial was not au­tho­rized to dis­cuss the mat­ter pub­licly and spoke on con­di­tion of anonymity.

FBI spokesman Arnold Laanui said Mon­day that SWAT team spe­cial agents ar­rested 34-year-old Ikaika Kang on Satur­day.

Laanui says the FBI will have more in­for­ma­tion when a crim­i­nal com­plaint has been filed.
