2 men arrested after allegedly attempting travel to participate in terror group

The RCMP say they've arrested two men in Toronto after the pair allegedly attempted to travel to "international conflict zones" to participate in a terrorist group.

TORONTO — The RCMP say they’ve arrested two men in Toronto after the pair allegedly attempted to travel to “international conflict zones” to participate in a terrorist group.

A spokeswoman says Kadir Abdul and Samuel Aviles were arrested last Friday on peace bonds, which are court orders to abide by certain conditions.

Const. Annie Delisle says Abdul and Aviles allegedly tried to travel through Turkey to international conflict zones in order to participate in a terrorist group.

She says the two men appeared in an Ontario court on Thursday where their case was put over to May 20.

Delisle says the two men have been released on certain conditions.

Abdul and Aviles are not currently charged with any criminal offences.

“Police may pursue an application for an order to keep the peace and be of good behaviour if they have reasonable grounds to believe that a person may commit a terrorism offence,” Delisle said.
