A Canadian man previously banned from associating with Islamic State extremists prepared a martyrdom video and was about to commit a terrorist attack but was killed after he detonated his explosive device in a taxi and was shot at by officers who say they thwarted the suicide bomb plot after being tipped off by the FBI, police said Thursday.
The suspect planned to carry out a suicide bombing in a public area in an urban center during rush hour, Deputy Royal Canadian Police Commander Mike Cabana said. He identified the suspect as Aaron Driver, 24, originally from Winnipeg, Manitoba.
