Canadian convert Abu Muslim went to Syria to join the jihad. But he didn’t make it back to Ontario. He was blown up in Aleppo.
The Toronto Sun reported:

A Timmins, Ont., man who went to Syria to fight with a rebel group linked to al-Qaida died last year, according to recent reports online.

Abu Muslim, previously known as Andre Poulin, died during a fight at the Mennegh Airport last year where the rebels were fighting the Free Syrian Army for control, an American jihadist identified as Abu Turab Al-Muhajir said in an online conversation earlier this month.

“Abu Muslim was martyred. I got pics,” Al-Muhajir said in the posting on Jan. 9.

On Jan. 15 during the same open conversation, he said there were “maybe 100” Canadians fighting in Syria.

As well, a post on Aug. 8, 2013 in the forum Islamic Awakening also confirmed Muslim’s death, saying he had been “recently martyred.”

To people on another Muslim forum, Ummah, he was known as Uncle Umar.
