Cousins draw prison sentence for ‘helping’ IS
An American soldier and his cousin were sentenced to jail terms of up to 30 years over a plot to attack a Chicago military base. The men pleaded guilty to conspiring to provide material support to the Islamic State group. Hasan Edmonds, 24, was a soldier in the US Army National Guard when he began communicating online with an FBI agent pretending to be an Islamic State fighter in Libya. They also discussed a plan for Jonas Edmonds, 31, to use his cousin’s military uniforms to attack the base in Joliet, where Hasan Edmonds was assigned.
