CANADA FOILS ISIS PLOT to Bomb US Consulate in Toronto (Video)
Jahanzeb Malik was plotting to bomb the US Consulate in Toronto and other buildings in Toronto’s financial district.
Jahanzeb Malik came to Canada as a student.
The Jerusalem Post reported:
Canada said on Wednesday it had foiled a plot by a self-proclaimed Islamic State supporter to bomb the US consulate and other buildings in Toronto’s financial district.
The alleged plot came to light after the Pakistani man, who has lived in Canada since 2004, tried to recruit an undercover Royal Canadian Mounted Police officer, officials said.
Jahanzeb Malik, 33, was arrested on Monday by Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) and appeared at a deportation hearing on Wednesday on grounds of being a danger to security. He has not been charged with any criminal offenses.
“I would like to confirm that CBSA has arrested an individual, a supporter of the Islamic State, who was allegedly planning a terrorist attack here in Canada,” Public Safety Minister Steven Blaney told reporters in Ottawa.
Canada is trying to deport the would-be terrorist.
This story was mostly ignored by the US media.
