MILWAUKEE - Federal authorities allege a Wisconsin woman hacked social media accounts to recruit on behalf of the Islamic State group.
Forty-five-year-old Waheba Issa Dais of Cudahy is charged with providing "material support or resources to a foreign terrorist organization." The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports she appeared before a federal magistrate on Wednesday and is scheduled to return to court Friday to determine bail.
According to an FBI affidavit, Daisalso also provided instructions" on how to make explosives, biological weapons and suicide vests."
Dais, a native of Jerusalem, was allowed to come to the U.S. in 1992 without a passport because of her marriage to a U.S. citizen. The couple divorced in 2003, according to court records. She is now a lawful permanent resident who the FBI believes does not work outside of the home.
It's unclear if Dais has an attorney who could comment on her behalf.
WOODRUFF - Ascension Wisconsin Spirit Medical Transport hosted a fun-filled day for family and friends on Saturday.
This comes about five months after one of its helicopters crashed, killing three Spirit employees.
Regional manager Charles Kotke said those men were in mind today,
"Today is a day of bringing people together, as well as a celebration of our 25 year anniversary," said Kotke. "This team did an amazing job getting us back to caring for our patients and doing what we need to do to care of our community."
Flight paramedics showed off the aircrafts to people and the helicopter was a big hit.
"They definitely like to look at the aircrafts. See how we transport patients from point A to point B," said Northern Region Supervisor Ryan Short.
Next Saturday, Spirit is celebrating with more associates. The second part of the celebration will be in Stevens Point.
