Feds say Ohio man planned overseas terrorist training trip
COLUMBUS- An Ohio man has been arrested on allegations that he planned to travel to Afghanistan to train with an Islamic State affiliated group.
The government accuses Naser Almadaoji of arranging to move through Kazakhstan to Afghanistan, where he intended to train with a group called ISIS Wilayat Khorasan.
The 19-year-old from Beavercreek in suburban Dayton was arrested Wednesday at John Glenn International Airport in Columbus.
Prosecutors say the Iraqi-born U.S. citizen is charged with attempting to provide material support to ISIS-affiliated foreign terrorist organizations. A message was left with his attorney seeking comment on the charge.
The government says the defendant unsuccessfully tried to join a terrorist group after traveling to Egypt and Jordan in February.
