Alleged terror plot targeting Via train thwarted

Recommended Posts

Canadian police say they have arrested two men and thwarted a plot to carry out a major terrorist attack on a Via passenger train in the Greater Toronto Area.

The two accused are Chiheb Esseghaier, 30, of Montreal and Raed Jaser, 35, from Toronto. They have been charged with conspiracy to carry out a terrorist attack and "conspiring to murder persons unknownn for the benefit of, at the direction of, or in association with a terrorist group."

The two men arrested are not Canadian citizens, police said.

The RCMP accuses the two men of conspiring to commit "al-Qaeda-supported" attack. Chief Supt. Jennifer Strachan said the two suspects watched trains and railways in the Greater Toronto Area.
