Toronto terror suspects

TORONTO – Two men accused of planning a terror attack to derail a passenger train in the Toronto area make their first appearance in court Tuesday.

U.S. Congressman Peter King said the target is believed to be a train going from Canada to the U.S.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police said the men were part of the first known Al Qaeda-inspired plot in Canada.

Charges against the men include conspiring to carry out an attack and murder people in association with a terrorist group.

Officials said the attack was in the planning stage but not imminent.
