Jihadist terrorism, back in the news:
Canada's Royal Canadian Mounted Police has arrested two in a plot to bomb a passenger train. While news organizations are reporting police denials that the plot had anything to do with the Boston bombing, the Globe & Mail does add this detail:
The RCMP community outreach team has been in touch with local religious groups in Toronto, sources said.
One police source said the number of arrests will be smaller than 18 teenagers and young adults arrested in Toronto in 2006 on bomb plot charges.
Police are not commenting on a CBC report that the investigation thwarted a terrorist attack and that it was a joint effort between Canadian and U.S. authorities, including CSIS, the RCMP, the FBI and homeland security.
Several Muslim community leaders were called by Mounties early Monday to drop what they were doing and come at 2:30 p.m. to the RCMP police station near Toronto's Pearson International Airport.
