A California man who prosecutors say was on his way to Syria to join an Islamist militant group was arrested on Monday near the US-Canada border in Washington state on a charge of attempting to provide material support to a terrorist organization, federal officials said.



The US Department of Justice said in a statement that 20-year-old Nicholas Teausant had planned to cross into Canada and travel on to Syria to join an al-Qaida-linked militant group, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.
