Bail hearing under way in terror case

OTTAWA - A bail hearing for an Ottawa man arrested on terrorism charges will stretch into a second day.

OTTAWA - A bail hearing for an Ottawa man arrested on terrorism charges will stretch into a second day.

Contents of the hearing for Misbahuddin Ahmed, an X-ray technologist at an Ottawa hospital, are under a publication ban.

Ahmed, 26, was charged in late August with conspiring to facilitate terrorist activity.

This week he was also charged with possession of explosives intended to cause harm in league with a terrorist group.

Hiva Mohammad Alizadeh, 30, of Ottawa and Khurram Syed Sher, 28, of London, Ont., have also been charged under the Anti-Terrorism Act.

The three men were arrested after police seized more than 50 electronic circuit boards supposedly designed to be remote detonators for explosive devices, as well as schematics, videos, terrorist literature and bomb-related documents.

Bail hearings for Alizadeh and Sher have yet to begin.

Three other men have been named as unindicted co-conspirators.

Police allege the international plot stretches from Canada to Afghanistan, Dubai, Iran and Pakistan.

But there has been no official word on the alleged targets — or even if things had advanced to that stage.
