WASHINGTON, April 22 (Reuters) - Authorities have thwarted a plot in Canada to attack a railroad that carries a daily Amtrak passenger train between Toronto and New York City, U.S. law enforcement and national security sources said on Monday.
The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation earlier reported that
Canadian police and intelligence agencies will announce multiple arrests on Monday afternoon after an operation to thwart a “major terrorist attack.”
The Royal Canadian Mounted Police said in a statement they would provide details about a “national security criminal investigation” at a news conference at 3:30 p.m. ET (1930 GMT). (Reporting by Mark Hosenball, Editing by Alistair Bell and Christopher Wilson)
