A Wisconsin mother-of-two has been charged with using hacked Facebook accounts to recruit for ISIS and share a 'virtual library' on bomb making and poisons with potential attackers.

Waheba Issa Dais, 45, tried to recruit people to carry out atrocities including the poisoning of a reservoir with deadly ricin, according to a criminal complaint released by the FBI on Wednesday.
