A Canadian citizen accused of playing a role in an Iraq bombing that killed five American soldiers in April 2009 briefly faced four terror-related charges laid by Canadian authorities.
RCMP arrested Sayfildin Tahir Sharif Wednesday on behalf of the FBI.
Sharif’s lawyer, Bob Aloneissi, told CBC News Friday the RCMP charged his client with terror-related crimes including financing terror and knowingly facilitating terrorist activity. Aloneissi said those charges were then dropped Wednesday without explanation.
