FBI arrests US soldier in Hawaii on Islamic State terror charge

A US official says that an active duty Army soldier has been arrested by the FBI in Hawaii on terrorism charges.
The official says that the solder was arrested because of connections he had with the Islamic State group.
A later army statement identified the soldier as Ikaika Kang, 34, of Waipahu. He allegedly swore allegiance to ISIS, the statement said.
Kang was with the 25th Infantry Division at Schofield Barracks in Honolulu.
FBI spokesman Arnold Laanui said that SWAT team special agents arrested Ikaika Kang yesterday. Laanui says the FBI will have more information when a criminal complaint has been filed, though it beleives Kang to have been a ‘lone actor’.
Officials said the suspect, who graduated from Kaiser High School, was the subject of a year-long investigation.
He is due to face court today.
