Brother of US man killed fighting for ISIS sentenced

The brother of a San Diego man believed to be the first American citizen killed while opposing alongside the Islamic State in Syria has been sentenced to 10 years in prison on terrorism-related charges.

Marchello Dsaun McCain was sentenced Friday in federal tribunal in San Diego for illegal possession of a cache of firearms and body armour and building false statements to federal agents about international terrorism.

McCain is the friend of Douglas McCain who was killed in 2014 in Iraq while opposing alongside the Islamic State in Syria.

The United States unsealed a two-count indictment charging Canadian national and former San Diego resident Abdullahi Ahmed Abdullahi with conspiring with Douglas McCain and others in the United States and Canada to provide support to terrorists in Syria.
