The RCMP will reveal a significant new terrorism case on Friday morning.
The police force has announced a press conference for its integrated national-security enforcement team will be held at 9 a.m. ET.
Sources say Canada’s counterterrorism authorities have, for the first time, taken custody of an alleged foreign terrorist arrested abroad and brought that suspect to Canada for prosecution.
An individual is anticipated to make a court appearance in Ottawa Friday, sources said. Officials would not reveal his or her identity, alleged affiliation nor any other details on Thursday night.
