Toronto Terror Plot Foiled



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

The CBC reports the train was set to travel between Toronto and New York City.

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.
