A 29-year-old Canadian man on Monday became the first to be found guilty at trial under a law banning people from trying to leave Canada to commit a terrorist act.

Ismael Habib, the son of an Afghan father and a Canadian mother, had sought to reach Syria to join the Islamic State group. He came under police investigation in 2015 and was arrested last year.

His wife and two young children were reportedly living in the war-torn nation.

Habib did not have a valid passport because it had been revoked after a failed 2012 attempt to reach Syria in which he was detained in Turkey and deported to Canada.

It also applies to cases in which a person "leaves or attempts to leave Canada."
