Authorities have nabbed two men in an alleged terrorist plot to attack a Canadian passenger train — a scheme that apparently had support from al-Qaida.
Just a week after the Boston Marathon was struck by bombers, authorities in this country pulled back the curtain on a new threat Monday, saying the culprits had planned to derail a Via train and that they had received “direction and guidance” from al-Qaida “elements” in Iran.
The RCMP said there is, however, no indication the planned attacks were “state-sponsored.” The plan was apparently uncovered after authorities received a tip from a member of the Muslim community.
