NewsAlert: RCMP make third terror-related arrest following charges against twins

OTTAWA — The RCMP have arrested a third Ottawa man in an alleged terrorist conspiracy.

The Mounties charged Suliman Mohamed, 21, of Ottawa with the criminal offence of participation in the activity of a terrorist group.

Mohamed was also charged with conspiracy to participate in a terrorist activity with two other Ottawa men.

On Friday, twin brothers Ashton Carleton Larmond and Carlos Larmond of Ottawa were charged with terrorism-related offences.

A lawyer for the brothers says they plan to vigorously dispute the charges.

Chief Supt. Jennifer Strachan, criminal operations officer for the RCMP in Ontario, says the recent arrests underscore the reality that there are individuals in Canada who have become radicalized to a violent ideology.
