    Canadian authorities announced Monday they have broken up an Al Qaeda-linked terror plot to attack a passenger train as it crossed over a bridge in the Toronto area.

"It was definitely in the planning stage but not imminent," RCMP chief superintendent Jennifer Strachan told reporters at a news conference. Read more:...

    The story began on March 20, 2009, when Ottawa police received a routine 911 call for a break-in at the house of Patrick J. Boyle, 51, a judge on Canada's tax court. The front door had been smashed, the house ransacked, and holes from .22-calibre bullets had smashed some windows. No one was home at the time of the break-in; the thieves apparently stole documents, a computer monitor, video games, and other personal items. Alarms went off, for the police were investigating the 2007 murder of a former colleague, Alban Garon, killed along with his wife and a neighbor. Then,...

    WASHINGTON -- Foreign Affairs Minister Lawrence Cannon on Tuesday provided assurances to the Obama administration Canada will not "interfere" in its review of terrorism charges against Canadian Omar Khadr, the last westerner remaining at Guantanamo. Meanwhile, a row has erupted between Mr. Khadr's military lawyer and the officer's boss -- resulting in the lawyer being barred from seeing the Canadian-born terror suspect as an inquiry unfolds. Mr. Cannon raised Mr. Khadr's case during a meeting in Washington with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, seeking information about the U.S. decision to conduct a 120-day review of all Guantanamo detainees facing terrorism...

    Military officials believe Canadian immigration policies are creating a "favorable" environment for what the U.S. government deems to be potential terrorists seeking entry into the United States from the north, according to an internal briefing crafted by a U.S. Northern Command joint task force.Officials at the Joint Task Force-North believe a “large population” of so-called special-interest aliens, or SIAs, in Eastern Canada presents the “greatest potential for foreign terrorists' access to the homeland,” according to a Jan. 15 briefing available on the organization's Web site until recently. Specifically, U.S. military officials worry about “special-interest aliens” from Pakistan, Afghanistan and Egypt.The...

    No surprise. Nasrallah’s been screaming about revenge on Israel since the day after Hezbollah super-jihadi Imad Mughniyeh was assassinated in February. They’ve hit Jewish targets in the west before too, of course, most famously in 1994 with the bombing of the Jewish community center in Buenos Aires that killed 85 people and earned Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani — the heir apparent to Khamenei as supreme leader of Iran — an arrest warrant from the Argentinian government in 2006. The U.S. isn’t expected to be on the target list. Supposedly, Iran’s afraid Bush might hit back. Intelligence officials tell ABC News the...

    NEW YORK - A Canadian terrorist who briefly became an informant against top al-Qaida leaders was sentenced to life in prison Friday for plotting to blow up American embassies in Singapore and the Philippines. A federal judge in Manhattan imposed the sentence after listening to a 20-minute speech from admitted terrorist Mohammed Mansour Jabarah, in which he repudiated violence and asked to be allowed to go home to his family.

    NAVAL STATION GUANTANAMO BAY, Cuba, Nov. 8, 2007 – The case against a Canadian detainee accused of killing a U.S. soldier in Afghanistan and supporting al Qaeda took another strange twist today when the judge delayed the proceedings to give the defense team time to review last-minute evidence likely to favor the defendant. Army Col. Peter Brownback arraigned Omar Ahmed Khadr here today on charges of murder, attempted murder, conspiracy, supporting terrorism and spying. Khadr, who sat in the courtroom in a white detainee uniform with his hair tucked up under a black skull cap, waived the right to raise...

    A government committee has concluded that Mohammed Mansour Jabarah was "arbitrarily detained" by CSIS when it helped the admitted al-Qaeda member surrender to FBI agents five years ago. The Security Intelligence Review Committee also found his right to silence as protected under the Charter of Rights was violated as well as his right to counsel. "Furthermore, his right to remain in Canada as protected by section 6 of the Charter [mobility rights] was violated," says a report from the committee. The committee, chaired by former Manitoba premier Gary Filmon, made six recommendations, principal among them the need to obtain formal...

    After meeting with American military lawyers representing Omar Khadr, Liberal Leader Stephane Dion renewed his calls for the Conservative government to demand the Canadian's release and repatriation from Guantanamo Bay. The son of an alleged al Qaeda financier, Khadr was accused of killing U.S. Army Sgt. Christopher Speer with a grenade during a firefight in Afghanistan on July 27, 2002. Khadr, who turns 21 today, was sent to the U.S. military prison in Cuba following his arrest in Afghanistan at the age of 15. He is the only Western prisoner left at Guantanamo Bay.

    At this week’s annual meeting of the Canadian Bar Association, the CBA sent a strongly worded letter to Prime Minister Stephen Harper demanding that he enter into negotiations with the United States to have 20-year-old Canadian Omar Khadr released from Guantanamo Bay and returned to Canada. What really makes the writing of the letter newsworthy is the fact that except for a couple of lawyers and assorted members of Canada’s first family of terrorism, there has been no large outcry about Khadr’s repatriation to Canada. Canadians obviously are content to let the little jihadist rot in the American facility in...

    The United Nations announced Wednesday it has imposed sanctions on a man with dual Canadian and Sudanese citizenship who allegedly worked with Abu Zubaydah, al-Qaeda's one-time operations chief in Afghanistan. The UN Security Council committee in charge of anti-terrorism sanctions against al-Qaeda and remnants of the Taliban added Abu Sufian Al-Salamabi Muhammed Ahmed Abd Al-Razziq to its sanctions list on July 31. The move follows joint action taken in July by the U.S. State Department and Treasury Department. Abd Al-Razziq was deemed a terror risk, which immediately blocked all assets he has that are reachable by the U.S. government. The...

    WASHINGTON -- The Bush administration on Thursday named a Canadian citizen with high-level ties to al Qaida, Abousofian Abdelrazik, as a "specially designated global terrorist" and launched action to seize his U.S. financial assets. Abdelrazik, who also holds Sudanese citizenship, "is known to have been a member of an extremist cell in Montreal" and had close associations with Ahmed Ressam, the convicted millennium bomber, the U.S. Treasury Department said in a statement. "According to information available to the United States government, (Abdelrazik) has provided administrative and logistical support to al Qaida," the Treasury statement said. "He has been identified as...

    Muslim extremist admits he was spy who revealed Canada bomb plot By Toby Harnden (Filed: 16/07/2006) Muslim leaders in Canada have reacted with fury after a radical advocate of Sharia law revealed that he had been a government spy who helped to uncover an alleged al-Qaeda plot, writes Toby Harnden. Mubin Shaikh, 29, came forward to confirm that he was recruited by the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS), the country's equivalent of MI5, and directed a 10-day winter training course in guerrilla tactics. During the course, which Mr Shaikh set up in a field in the remote village of Washago,...

    A young man facing charges in an alleged plot to blow up public buildings in southern Ontario was granted bail on Friday, the first of the 17 terror suspects to be freed while awaiting possible trial.The suspect, who cannot be named under Canadian law because he was 17 and still a minor at the time of the alleged offenses, was released under very strict conditions, said his lawyer Gary Grill. "He's obviously very relieved," said Grill. "The conditions he's been detained in were pretty harsh." The suspect, now 18, is accused of participating in a terrorist group and receiving training...
