CBC News Posted: Aug 15, 2014 3:39 PM ET Last Updated: Aug 15, 2014 3:39 PM ET

Multiple social media reports in Iraq say that a young Calgary man who appeared in an ISIS video four months ago has been killed in Iraq.

Farah Mohamed Shirdon, a Calgarian fighting overseas with the militant group Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, was seen in the video burning his Canadian passport and threatening to destroy Iraq’s oppressors.

The Department of Foreign Affairs says it is aware of reports that a Canadian was killed in Iraq and is following the situation closely.

A man claiming to be Shirdon’s brother has been tweeting online — asking jihadi contacts for information on how Shirdon died.

Attempts by CBC News to reach Shirdon’s family in Calgary have so far been unsuccessful.

Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird told reporters following a news conference in London, Ont., he was aware of the reports but could not speak to the specific facts of the case.

MONTREAL: Alleged bomb-maker Jordi Antunes Barros released while he awaits trial

MONTREAL – An 18-year-old Montreal man accused of making 19 pipe bombs has been released while he awaits trial, but must remain under the strict watch of his family.

The bomb squad was called in, and it took more than 20 hours to dismantle the bombs. More than 50 nearby homes were evacuated as a precaution.

Barros is allowed to stay at home until his trial begins in August, but the courts have placed strict conditions on his freedom.

Terrorists Xristos Katsiroubas and Ali Medlej die in attack on Algerian gas plant that kills 70 people

Terrorists Xristos Katsiroubas, left, and Ali Medlej

How do middle-class Canadian kids become international terrorists?
By Matthew Coutts | Daily Brew – 21 hours ago

Xristos Katsiroubas, left, and Ali Medlej.
There are no straightforward answers when it comes to understanding what led Xristos Katsiroubas and Ali Medlej to abandon their lives in London, Ont., to join an Al-Qaida-linked militant group that attacked and took hostages at an Algerian gas plant.

The two boys have been described recently as average, everyday-type Canadians. That seemed to be the case right up until shortly before they flew overseas and died in the Algerian attack in January.

CBC News reported on Wednesday that a third schoolmate had travelled with the pair to North Africa and was jailed shortly before his cohorts died participating in the attack in Algeria.

Aaron Yoon was another average Canuck, a boy of Korean descent who was quiet and friendly and converted to Islam in his final year of high school. Continue reading

Immigration Minister Jason Kenney has stated what many have been thinking for some time: He has proposed that Canadian passport holders who commit acts of terror abroad or in Canada may have their citizenship revoked.

The scope of the private member’s Bill C-425 proposed by Conservative MP Devinder Shory will therefore be expanded to include the right of the Canadian government to revoke citizenship of individuals with dual nationalities who commit terror abroad or against Canada. Continue reading

Vous n’avez sans doute jamais entendu parler d’Abderraouf Jdey et de Faker Boussora. Ce sont deux Québécois d’origine tunisienne dont la tête est mise à prix (pour 5 millions de dollars) par le gouvernement des États-Unis dans son programme de lutte contre le terrorisme.
