CALGARY – A man who allegedly travelled to Syria to fight with the Islamic State will return to court Monday.

Hussein Sobhe Borhot, 34, is charged with participating with a terrorism group and commission of an offence for a terrorist group.

RCMP allege Borhort travelled to Syria between May 2013 and June 2014 to join Islamic State militants.

Investigators believe the group trained him for the purpose of enhancing its ability and that Borhot knowingly committed the offence of kidnapping while working with the militants.

Borhort was granted bail by a judge in July.

He could face life in prison if convicted of the kidnapping charge.
