Faouzi Ayoub, Lebanese-Canadian terror suspect, reportedly killed in Syria
Faouzi Ayoub was on the FBI's most-wanted list of terror suspects
Reports from Lebanon say that a Lebanese-Canadian, who has been on the FBI's most-wanted list of terror suspects, has been killed in Syria.
One media report published online says Faouzi Ayoub was killed in an ambush by members of the Free Syrian Army in Aleppo last week.
Before moving back to Lebanon, Ayoub lived in Toronto and Dearborn, Mich.
In a 2009 U.S. indictment, he was accused of using a fake passport in an attempt to enter Israel and conduct a bombing on behalf of Hezbollah.
Ayoub, who was also known as Fawzi Ayoub, was arrested in June 2002 in the West Bank city of Hebron and was held as an accused "illegal fighter." He was later released in a 2004 prisoner swap.
