Canadian police say foiled al Qaeda-inspired bomb plot

Canadian police said on Tuesday they foiled an al Qaeda-inspired plot to detonate bombs on a major national holiday in the capital of the Pacific province of British Columbia.


Police told a news conference they have charged a man and a woman in connection with an attempt to set off three bombs outside the province's legislature in Victoria on Monday, the Canada Day holiday. The devices never represented a threat to public safety, officials said. (Reuters)
