Alsorani moved to Scarborough, Ontario in the 1990s and worked as a construction labourer. On February 12, 2004, he travelled back to his native Iraq, ostensibly to visit his uncle in Sulaymaniya. The Canadian Security Intelligence Service then sent an agent to speak to his friends in Toronto, and he was arrested the following month by Kurdish officials in northern Iraq.
