It seems that the Muslim community assisted in detaining the two suspects, Chiheb Esseghaier, a 30-year old doctoral student of Montreal and Raed Jaser, age 35 of Toronto for planning to derail an Amtrak train after it had crossed the border into Canada from the United States. Several news sources have said that the plan was “al-Qaeda-inspired,” meaning that the plan was directed and guided from an element of al-Qaeda, the Islamic terrorist organization, based in Iran.
