A Dayton man is in custody after authorities say he was planning to join ISIS in Syria.

Federal prosecutors accuse 26-year-old Laith Alebbini with attempting to travel to Syria to fight with the Islamic State group. He was arraigned Thursday in U.S. District Court in Dayton on one count of attempting to provide material support and resources to a foreign terrorist organization.

U.S. Attorney Ben Glassman says Alebbini faces up to 20 years in prison if convicted.

Trump at YSU
M.L. SCHULTZE / WKSU

Donald Trump’s trip to Youngstown yesterday (Monday) differed in style from most of his other presidential stump speeches along the Ohio/Pennsylvania border. What did not change, as WKSU’s M.L. Schultze reports, was his call to slow immigration, the passion of his supporters – and the dearth of Ohio’s political leaders on stage with him.

Trump billed the speech as a major foreign policy address. And it was clear from the get-go that there would be no riffing by the candidate on building a wall with Mexico – though that’s often his biggest applause line.
