FBI: New York man tried to help and join Islamic State group

A man was arrested Thursday on charges he tried to help the Islamic State group, using Twitter to espouse support for the terrorist organization while attempting multiple failed trips to join fighters in Syria and Yemen. Between September 2014 and last month, Ali Saleh stopped at airports in New York, New Jersey, Philadelphia and Indianapolis, according

to unsealed court papers. The 22-year-old Saleh was interviewed by federal agents at an Amtrak train station in Cleveland while en route to Toronto before he was finally arrested in Queens, according to the papers. “Lets be clear the Muslims in the khilafah (caliphate) need help, the one who is capable to go over and help the Muslims must go and help,” Saleh posted on a Twitter account investigators believe he controlled in August 2014, when he booked a reservation to Turkey, a common point of entry to Syria, according to a criminal complaint.
