TORONTO (AP) — The Islamic State group is calling a Canadian man who was allegedly planning an attack a “soldier of the Islamic State.”

A tip from the FBI sent Canadian police scrambling to identify and locate a would-be suicide bomber they feared was on the verge of committing a terror attack in Canada.

Aaron Driver, who had previously been banned from associating with extremists, was killed when he detonated an explosive device in a taxi as officers shot at him Wednesday.

Authorities say Driver had prepared a martyrdom video.
