Two Canadian residents were arrested and charged with allegedly planning to attack a Via Rail passenger train that travels between the US and Canada. Police say the two men -- 30-year-old Chiheb Esseghaier (shuh-HEB' EZ'-ah-GUY'-ur ) and 35-year-old Raed Jaser (rah-EED' JAH'-ser) -- had "direction and guidance" from al-Qaida elements in Iran. RCMP Quebec Chief Superintendent Gaetan Courchesne (KOOR'-shayn) commented on the allegations. (Tunisian national Ahmed Abassi was also detained in the U.S. and later charged in connection with the plot.)
