VANCOUVER - The RCMP has charged a British Columbia man for leaving Canada to take part in a terrorist activity.

The Integrated National Security Enforcement Team says 25-year-old Hasibullah Yusufzai of Burnaby is accused of committing an offence for the benefit of a terrorist group or was directed by or associated with such a group.

A police statement said the man left for Syria on Jan. 21.

RCMP say the man is known to have travelled to that country to join Islamist fighters.

A woman who answered the phone at Yusufzai's home said he wasn't there, then said she didn't speak English.

RCMP say they're working on the case with their international partners.
