Third person arrested in Canadian terror investigation

[Updated at 1:45 p.m.] A third person is in custody in the Canadian terror investigation, law enforcement officials said Thursday.

[Posted at 11:05 p.m.] A third suspect is at large after two men were arrested Wednesday in Ottawa, Canada, on terror-related crimes, according to Canadian federal prosecutor David McKercher.

The two men appeared in a Canadian courtroom Thursday.

Hiva Ali Zadeh is facing three charges including facilitating a terrorist act and conspiracy. Misbahuddin Ahmed, 36, has been charged with conspiracy, according to CNN producer Laura Dolan, who was in court.

We expect to learn more about the arrests at 1 p.m. /ET, when Canadian authorities are expected to brief the press.

      Dang dude, if it was not for your post, the authorities would not have known what to do. Thanks to your post, they have asked them the above questions.

      p.s. it wasn't Dudley that did it, it was Mrs. Dooright, Dudley is on vacation.

    How is this furthering NASA's new primary mission under Obama of finding "a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with predominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science, math, and engineering."

      I'm not the hugest fan of our immigration policy either, but learn to spell if you're going to argue a point like that. You'll need all the credibility you can get.

    Once again it is well-educated men with good jobs who are involved in these activities. I agree we need to drastically cut immigration from countries that are predominently Muslim. Unfortunately in Canada Quebec decides who they want to accept, so we get lots of Arabs since many have French as a second or third language (Egypt, Lebanon, Algeria Morocco).

    These people were monitored for a year – imagine what this cost us up to now.

    Lebanese President Michel Sleiman has officially asked Iran to equip and modernize the Lebanese Army, given the problems Beirut is facing.

    Sleiman has asked Iranian officials to consider selling advanced military equipment to the Lebanese Army, reported IRNA.

    The Lebanese president has reiterated that the modernization should take place while keeping in mind Beirut's strategic needs as well as its budget limitations.

    This follows recent deadly confrontation between Lebanese and Israeli forces.

    The exchange of fire left three Lebanese soldiers and one Israeli military officer dead.

    After the incident, US officials announced that they would freeze 100 million dollars in military aid destined for Beirut.
