Canada judge orders publication ban in train terror case
Toronto: A Canadian court issued a blanket ban on publishing details of proceedings against two Al Qaeda-linked foreign nationals accused of plotting to derail a passenger train in the Toronto area.
A defense lawyer asked for the ban at a bail hearing in Toronto for one of two accused, Raed Jaser, 35, who was arrested Monday along with Chiheb Esseghaier, 30. The judge agreed.
Police said the two suspects planned to carry out an attack on a Via Rail train.
Esseghaier was to make his first court appearance in Montreal later Tuesday, and thereafter the case is expected to be adjourned until May 23.
