Terror suspects make brief court appearance Add to ...

Three terror suspects arrested last week have made brief court appearances by video link, and all have been ordered to reappear later this month.

Hiva Mohammad Alizadeh, 30, and Misbahuddin Ahmed, 26, both of Ottawa and Khurram Syed Sher, 28, of London, Ont., are charged under the Anti-Terrorism Act.

Mr. Sher has been ordered to reappear Friday by video link, while Mr. Ahmed is to show in person on Sept. 15 and Mr. Alizadeh is to appear by video on the 16th.

No bail has yet been set for the three suspects.

They were arrested after a year-long investigation by the RCMP, the Canadian Security Intelligence Service and other agencies.

Investigators found more than 50 electronic circuit boards they say were designed to remotely detonate bombs and booby traps.

Police also seized videos, terrorist literature and bomb-related documents.

Police claim the terrorism plot stretched from Ottawa to Afghanistan, Dubai, Iran and Pakistan, but there has been no official word on the alleged targets.
