Mounties have laid terrorism charges against a Calgary man they believe has gone abroad to fight with the Islamic State. Twenty-two year-old Farah Mohamed Shirdon is known for burning his Canadian passport in an Islamic State propaganda video. RCMP believe he left Canada last year to fight with the terrorist group in Syria. Calgary Imam Syed Soharwardy (SY'-ed soh-har-WOR'-dee) says the charges will hopefully act as a deterrent to other youth thinking about heading overseas. But he wants officials to do more. (RCMP say a Canada-wide warrant has been issued for Shirdon's arrest and a notice is to be issued via Interpol.)
