OTTAWA — The Canadian soldier who was shot and killed as he stood guard on a bright and chilly morning at the National War Memorial is identified as Cpl. Nathan Frank Cirillo, family and military sources say.

A Parliament Hill security guard was wounded in the chaotic attack Wednesday just before 10 a.m. in the nation’s capital that police believe involved more than one assailant.

Cirillo, of Hamilton, was one of two Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders of Canada reservists standing guard in front of the monument when a gunman opened fire Wednesday morning. The shooter was killed inside the Parliament buildings after firing at least 20 shots.

Ottawa police would not confirm a CBS News report that has identified the dead shooter as Michael Zehaf-Bibeau. A high-ranking federal officer confirmed his identity to The Canadian Press. He was born in 1982 and is believed to be Canadian, the American news outlet reported, quoting U.S. officials. Continue reading

OTTAWA: Misbahuddin Ahmed found guilty of two terrorism-related charges

Former Ottawa hospital technician Misbahuddin Ahmed has been found guilty of two terrorism-related charges by a jury.

CBC News Posted: Jul 11, 2014 2:30 PM ET Last Updated: Jul 11, 2014 7:29 PM ET

Ahmed, 30, had pleaded not guilty to conspiring to knowingly facilitate a terrorist activity, participation in the activities of a terrorist group, and possession of explosives with intent to do harm after his arrest in August 2010.

His eight-week trial began in mid-May and went to a jury on Tuesday. On Friday, the jury found him guilty of the first two charges but not guilty to the possession of explosives charge.

Conspiring to knowingly facilitate a terrorist activity carries a maximum sentence of 14 years in prison, while participation in the activities of a terrorist group has a 10-year maximum term.

Ahmed will be sentenced on Sept. 15.

(…)

Crown lawyers said during the trial that Ahmed was a “committed jihadist” with an eye on potential Canadian targets, pointing to a bag in his basement they alleged held bomb-making materials.

Ahmed and his defence said during the trial that he was trying to stop a planned attack and was planning to destroy the contents of the bag, which he got from a known extremist.

The jury heard how the RCMP had tapped Ahmed’s phone and videotaped him meeting with that same extremist, whose name is covered under a publication ban.

A verdict is expected in the trial for Khurram Sher, one of Ahmed’s alleged co-conspirators, on Aug. 19.

Deportation of serial rapist Louay Khalil to Lebanon, accused of assaulting mentally challenged woman

Khalil’s entry into Canada was made possible by marrying his own cousin

Original source article: Sex offender turned over to immigration authorities after deportation stalled

A man ordered deported in 2011 but who stayed in the country because of ongoing legal issues has now been handed over to immigration authorities.

Louay Khalil was ordered deported to Lebanon in 2011 for two sexual assaults in 2007.

Police say he reoffended in March 2010 and March 2012, and was rearrested.

He could not be deported until those matters were settled in court. In one case he was charged with sexual interference and sexual assault, and in the other case he was accused of sexually assaulting a developmentally disabled woman.

Both cases were stayed in court this month. On Tuesday, Khalil was handed over to the Canada Border Services Agency. He appeared briefly before an immigration hearing in Calgary on Wednesday morning, but it was delayed for a day to translate documents into Arabic.

How do middle-class Canadian kids become international terrorists?

Xristos Katsiroubas, left, and Ali Medlej.
There are no straightforward answers when it comes to understanding what led Xristos Katsiroubas and Ali Medlej to abandon their lives in London, Ont., to join an Al-Qaida-linked militant group that attacked and took hostages at an Algerian gas plant.

The two boys have been described recently as average, everyday-type Canadians. That seemed to be the case right up until shortly before they flew overseas and died in the Algerian attack in January.

CBC News reported on Wednesday that a third schoolmate had travelled with the pair to North Africa and was jailed shortly before his cohorts died participating in the attack in Algeria.

Aaron Yoon was another average Canuck, a boy of Korean descent who was quiet and friendly and converted to Islam in his final year of high school. Continue reading
