The brother of a San Diego man believed to be the first American citizen killed while fighting alongside the Islamic State in Syria has been sentenced to 10 years in prison on terrorism-related charges. McCain is the brother of 33-year-old Douglas McCain who was killed in 2014. McCain's brother left the United States in March 2014 and five months later was reported killed fighting against the Free Syrian Army. On Sept. 15, 2017, pursuant to an extradition request by the United States, Canadian authorities arrested Abdullahi. Besides Douglas McCain, four others left the U.S. and traveled to Syria as part of the conspiracy.
