One week after the Boston bombing, Canada has arrested two men it claims planned to attack a passenger train running between New York and Toronto. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police said the terrorist plot involved derailing the train, but gave no further details.

Canadian authorities said they believe al-Qaeda was behind the attack.

Chiheb Esseghaier, 30, and Raed Jaser, 35, are said to have had the ability to carry out the attack. Officials, however, said “there was no imminent threat to the general public, rail employees, train passengers or infrastructure.” Esseghaier and Jaser are charged with “conspiring to carry out an attack against, and conspiring to murder persons unknown for the benefit of, at the direction of, or in association with a terrorist group.”

Authorities also said the suspects are not connected to the attack carried out last week in Boston.

In what is now a familiar pattern, the suspects were under surveillance for more than a year before their arrest. The FBI worked with the Canadian Security Intelligence Service, the Canada Border Service Agency, and eight other police agencies, RCMP said Monday.

The FBI has a long and well-documented history of staging terror events.

The alleged attack arrives as the Harper government works to pass S-7, the Combating Terrorism Act, legislation that will rollback civil liberties in Canada.
