A major terror plot involving an Amtrak train with targets in Canada and possibly New York City was disrupted by Canadian and U.S. officials this afternoon. Officials are stressing to the public that the suspects have been closely monitored for more than a year and that public safety was never compromised.
The operation was coordinated with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, the FBI, The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), Canadian Security Intelligence Services and the Canada Border Service Agency.
Arrest information on multiple suspects could be announced later Monday afternoon.
The report comes on the heels of a week of terror related headlines in the U.S. including a ricin letter scare, the Boston Marathon Bombings, a very suspicious fire and explosion which leveled the entire town of West, Texas and just yesterday new reports of suspicious activity at a Tennessee nuclear reactor in which shots were fired.
