Canadian man pleads guilty to US terror charges

A Canadian man has pleaded guilty to U.S. charges he supported a 2009 terror attack in Iraq that killed American soldiers.

Faruq Khalil Muhammad ‘Isa entered the plea on Wednesday in federal tribunal in Brooklyn.

Muhammad ‘Isa is a Canadian citizen and Iraqi national who was arrested in 2011 on a U.S. warrant. He was extradited to the U.S. in 2015.

An extradition request quoth wiretap proof and an interview of Muhammad ‘Isa that American authorities claim connected him to a group of Tunisian jihadists.

Authorities say the group employed a suicide bomber to explode an explosives-laden truck outside the gate of the U.S. base in Mosul, Iraq, killing the soldiers.
