CNN — Two men arrested Monday were allegedly part of an al Qaeda-supported plot to attack a passenger train, officials with the Royal Canadian Mountain Police said.
Chiheb Esseghaier and Raed Jaser were plotting to attack a Canadian passenger train.
The thwarted terror plot in Canada was targeting a train "going from Canada to the U.S.," Rep. Peter King, R-New York, told CNN in an interview to be broadcast on the Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer on Monday.
According to the RCMP, the men were not Canadian citizens.
The two men arrested in an alleged terror plot in the greater Toronto area will make their first court appearance on Tuesday, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police said.
