Youth arrested in Kingston terrorism case due for bail hearing


OTTAWA — A youth facing terrorism charges in Kingston, Ont., is due in court for a bail hearing today.

He was charged in late January after a Canadian police investigation sparked by a tip from the FBI and has been in custody ever since.

His identity can’t be revealed under provisions of the Youth Criminal Justice Act.

The RCMP said the youth knowingly facilitated a terrorist activity and counselled another person to “deliver, place, discharge or detonate an explosive or other lethal device” in a public place, though they also said no specific target had been set before they moved in.

A 20-year-old man was arrested at the same time, but was released hours later.

The bail hearing is expected to take two days, with the second one not scheduled until the end of the month.
