SWAT team shoots dead would-be ISIS suicide bomber in Canada raid
An ISIS fanatic is dead after Canada's national police force thwarted an alleged suicide bomb plot in Ontario.
Aaron Driver, 23, had planned to carry out a suicide bombing mission in a public area during rush-hour but was killed during a confrontation with police in a house in Strathroy, a senior police official said on Wednesday night.
He was shot by police in a dramatic raid after he detonated an explosive device, injuring himself and one other, CBC News reports. He reportedly had another device which he was going to detonate.
Driver, who was originally from Winnipeg, Manitoba, was arrested last year for openly supporting Islamic State on social media.
