Authorities suspect Aboud and the 17 other men of being members of a terrorist cell that planned to attack targets in southern Ontario and Toronto, including the CN Tower and the Peace Tower on Parliament Hill in Ottawa. Also on Thursday, an Ontario judge denied bail for one of the men arrested in June, but a court-imposed publication ban [JURIST report] on all bail hearing proceedings prevents the release of the reasons for denying bail. The judge has now granted bail to three suspects and denied bail for five. CBC News has more. The Toronto Star has additional coverage.
