Canadians taking al-Qaeda training in Pakistan: report

OTTAWA — The RCMP is investigating a claim that a dozen Canadians in al-Qaeda training camps in Pakistan are preparing to mount terror missions in Canada.
“Any information that we receive, we look at assessing its credibility and then taking proper actions to ensure that Canadians and our allies are kept safe,” Assistant Commissioner Gilles Michaud, in charge of the Mountie’s national-security program, said in an interview Friday.

The Hong Kong-based Asia Times Online reported Friday that “well-placed” Taliban sources say a group of Canadian militants is receiving jihadi training in al-Qaeda camps in North Waziristan for terror attacks in Canada.

The story was written by Syed Saleem Shahzad, the paper’s Pakistan bureau chief. He has extensive experience reporting on the Taliban and authored the upcoming book Inside al-Qaeda and the Taliban
