FBI Arrests U.S. Soldier in Hawaii on Terrorism Charges For Alleged Connections to ISIS

It was made public Monday evening that the FBI arrested an active duty U.S. soldier in Hawaii on Saturday for terrorism charges.

The soldier, identified at 34-year-old Ikaika Kang, allegedly swore his allegiance to ISIS and is being accused of trying to provide military documents and training to the terrorist group. The FBI believes he was acting alone.

Kang was stationed at Schofield Barracks in Honolulu and was part of the the 25th Infantry Division.

Paul D. Delacourt, the FBI’s special agent in charge in Honolulu, said in a statement that the FBI had been investigating Kang for over a year.

FBI spokesman Arnold Laanui said more information will be made known once when a criminal complaint has been filed. Kang is expected to appear in federal court at 2:30 p.m. local time (8:30 p.m. ET) Monday.
