Arrest of Sacramento ISIS Suspect One of Several Terror Cases Prosecuted in Region

The arrest in Sacramento County on Wednesday of a suspected ISIS and al-Qaida leader is the latest of several terror-related cases in recent years in the capital region, ranging from suspects accused of training for Jihad to others accused of wanting to fight overseas for terrorist groups.

Omar Ameen, 45, was arrested at an Arden Arcade apartment complex on Wednesday as part of a request by the Iraqi government that he be extradited to his home country to face a murder charge there for allegedly killing a former police officer as part of an ISIS operation.

Ameen, an auto mechanic who came to the United States in 2014, is in custody at the Sacramento County Main Jail and is due back in federal court Monday.
