Canadian law enforcement officials are set to announce arrests in a major terrorist plot. CTV News reports:
The suspects, one in Montreal and one in Toronto, were arrested Monday morning and “will face criminal charges,” reported CTV’s Ottawa Bureau Chief Robert Fife.
The arrests were part of an ongoing investigation conducted by the RCMP and the Canadian Security Intelligence Service, which “had been going on for a considerable amount of time,” Fife said.
“I am told that the two people who have been arrested, they are linked somehow to al Qaeda,” Fife reported Monday afternoon.
Fife said it remains unclear how the two are connected to the international terror organization.
The plot reportedly targeted railroads running between Toronto and New York.
