Ohio man tried to join Daesh, feds say
An Ohio man accused of trying to join Daesh was arrested Monday while attempting to fly to Libya, federal authorities said.
Aaron Daniels, 20, was arrested at John Glenn Columbus International Airport after a months-long investigation, said U.S. Attorney Benjamin Glassman.
A criminal complaint alleges Daniels told an undercover informant about his interest in travelling overseas to commit jihad. The complaint says Daniels wired $250 in January to a Beirut intermediary for a nowdeceased recruiter for Daesh.
