A bond hearing is set for an Ohio man accused of trying to travel to Libya to join the Islamic State group.

A federal prosecutor in Columbus says Aaron Daniels wired $250 to an Islamic State group operative in January and told an undercover informant about his interest in traveling overseas to commit jihad.

Daniels' court-appointed attorney has declined to comment.

Daniels was taken into custody Monday at John Glenn Columbus International Airport after a months-long investigation.

Prosecutors want the 20-year-old Daniels kept in jail. Magistrate Judge Terence Kemp scheduled a Thursday morning hearing.
