Two men arrested and charged in terrorist plot in Canada

TORONTO (WKOW) -- Canadian police have arrested two men and charged them with plotting a terrorist attack against a Canadian passenger train.

Officials say 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.
