Canadian authorities nabbed a terrorist before he could carry out a plot to bomb the U.S. Consulate in Toronto, the Jewish Press website reports today (March 12, 2015).
Jhanzab Malik -- a Pakistani national holding permanent resident status in Canada and an Islam fanatic -- also allegedly planned to attack targets in Toronto's financial district.
He was arrested on suspicion of "engaging in terrorism and being a danger to national security."
Malik was ordered held on "security grounds" pending deportation following an immigration hearing yesterday. He originally entered Canada on a student visa in 2004, but gained permanent status via his wife's sponsorship five years later.
