A U.S. official says that an active duty Army soldier has been arrested by the FBI in Hawaii on terrorism charges.

The official says that the soldier was arrested because of connections he had with the Islamic State group.

He says the soldier was with the 25th Infantry Division at Schofield Barracks in Honolulu.

The official was not authorized to discuss the matter publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.

FBI spokesman Arnold Laanui said Monday that SWAT team special agents arrested 34-year-old Ikaika Kang on Saturday. Laanui says the FBI will have more information when a criminal complaint has been filed.

Laanui says Kang was scheduled for an initial appearance in federal court on Monday afternoon.

Fox News reported that the FBI said Kang had been under investigation for more than a year, and is accused of swearing allegiance to ISIS, attempting to provide military documents and training to ISIS.

Kang is believed to have been acting alone, Fox reported.
