This week, police say they stopped 24-year-old Aaron Driver from carrying out a terrorist attack on a Canadian city using a homemade bomb. Driver died in a confrontation with police. Here's everything we know about the case.
1. Driver was a known ISIS supporter, and being watched by the authorities.
2. Police raided Driver's home on a tip from the FBI.
3. It's unclear exactly how Driver died.
The RCMP said that as they were watching Driver's home, a taxi cab pulled up and Driver quickly got inside.
When police confronted him, he set off an explosive device in the backseat. Police opened fire, but it's not clear if Driver died from a gunshot, the explosion, or maybe a combination of the two.
These photos show the aftermath of the explosion. The cab driver told CBC News he dove out of the car moments before the explosion, and he walked away with seemingly no injuries.
The RCMP said Driver also had a second homemade explosive device with him, which he was not able to set off.
4. Driver made a video declaring his intentions.
5. Driver was a recent Muslim convert who found a sense of purpose online.
