Canada terror plot halted

Posted: Updated:

TORONTO (AP) - Police in Canada say two men have been arrested and charged with plotting a terrorist attack against a Canadian passenger train.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police said Monday that Chiheb Esseghaier and Raed Jaser were conspiring to carry out an al-Qaida supported attack against Via Rail, but posed no imminent threat.

The investigation was part of a cross-border operation involving Canadian law enforcement agencies, the FBI and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
