Canadian police said on Friday they have laid two terrorism- related charges against an Edmonton, Alberta-area youth, with local media reporting he was allegedly seeking to travel to join Islamic State fighters.

The youth, whose name cannot be revealed under Canadian law, has been charged with attempting to leave the country to both participate in a terrorist group and commit an offense that is a terrorist activity, police said in a statement.



The Royal Canadian Mounted Police said the young person was arrested without incident on Friday.
